The Galveston County Health District is reminding everyone that the old saying about an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure is especially true when it comes to influenza. The ”ounce of prevention” is a flu shot which is the best way to prevent the flu.
”There are no sure predictions about this year’s flu season but we do know the season will bring illness inconvenience and missed work” said Dr. Mark Guidry Galveston County Health Authority. ”For some at higher risk it brings flu complications hospitalization and even death. A simple flu shot is your best protection.”
