At an event at the Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center onTuesday, the Department of Health reminded residents that it is time to get their flu vaccine, as flu season officially starts this month and runs until May. Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine encouraged residents to get their flu vaccine before the end of October and offered important tips to stay healthy during flu season. Levine said,
‘The flu is serious and can be deadly, which is why it is so important for everyone to take the proper precautions to protect themselves, their loved ones and anyone they meet. There is no better measure to protect yourself than to get a flu vaccine.’
