Fight the Fall Season Flu!

It’s fall season, a time for perfect weather and beautiful scenery. There isn’t much not to love about the best season of the year, except the flu.

This past legislative session, the Georgia General Assembly passed House Bill 198 with strong overall support. This addition to the law requires local school systems to provide information on influenza, or “the flu,” and its vaccine to parents and guardians of 6th-12th-grade students anytime they provide other health information.

To fulfill this requirement, the Georgia Department of Public Health has added influenza information to their website, explaining what influenza is, how to prevent its spread, and more. This information will be sent out statewide to school nurses.

The best time for vaccinations is early in the season.

Georgians can get vaccinated at:

  • School-based flu clinics
  • Local county health departments
  • Private healthcare providers
  • Local pharmacies
