Wisconsin is no exception to the many states reporting an early start to the flu season. “We started to see a significant increase in flu cases in early January,” reports Julie Pinney, RN, who is the Infection Prevention Specialist at Ministry Door County Medical Center (MDCMC).
MDCMC has a good supply of the flu vaccine available, and more shipments on the way. Pinney encourages everyone who is eligible to receive a flu shot. “No, it’s absolutely not too late,” she urges.
Ministry North Shore Medical Clinic – Sturgeon Bay will hold a Flu Clinic on Feb. 8 from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm, open to all ages 5 and above. No appointment is necessary; if uninsured the fee is $26.
