FIGHT THE FLU - Cold, Wintry weather brings an increased chance of catching the flu (Influenza).  The flu is spread from person to person by coughing and sneezing, or by direct contact with infected people of contaminated objects.  During these times of Coronavirus (CoVID-19), protecting yourself against the flu is even more important to safeguard you and your family's health.  Just like with CoVID-19, you can take effective, common sense measures to help prevent yourself and others from catching the flu including: (1) wash your hands; (2) cover your sneezes and coughs; (3) wear a face covering; (4) avoid close contact with people who are sick and generally practice social distancing; and, (5) stay home when you are sick.  For additional information, please go to the Baltimore City Health Department's Flu site.

Vaccinations are a proven and safe way to help your body's immune system fight the flu.  This year, our T.I.K.E. clinics will be giving free flu vaccinations to children who are at least 6 months old, adolescents and adults.  For children and adolescents, flu clinics are by appointment on Mondays - Thursdays, and by walking-in (no appointment needed) on Fridays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.  Adults may simply walk-in without an appointment to our T.I.K.E. clinic on Fridays, only, from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm.
