Those include people over 65, residents of nursing homes of long-term care facilities, those with suppressed immune systems of cer- tain acute or chronic illnesses or con- ditions, women in their second or third trimester of pregnancy, and chil- dren 6-23 months. "Now is the time for adults 50-64 .years of age to get vaccinated. For those of us not in the high-risk groups, it is still important to protect ourselves from getting the virus and thus from potentially spreading it to others," Ehresmann said. "It's not too late to do that for anybody six months of age and older." Flu shots can be obtained through health care providers or one of the clinics held at retail locations such as grocery stores or drug stores around the state. The MDH Web site at nize (click on 'influenza') has a listing of many local clinics, but residents are encouraged to consult their providers, local public health agency, or local retailers for exact dates, times and locations. Points to remember about flu: You need a flu shot every year because there are different strains of flu every year. People can die from the flu or from its complications. Flu vaccine has been proven to be safe and effective. You cannot get the flu from the flu shot. However, if you are exposed later to someone with the flu, you may get a mild case of the flu-milder than if you had not gotten your flu shot. rie Five RIDES Holiday Special i I I.; (0-17) ride free to and from the Twin Cities I adults for $25 (one way) for the weeks of Nov. 25, I Dec. 16, 23 and 30, 2002. | Clip coupon and submtt wdh payment.
