Ongoing TB control efforts also include: providing case management and directly observed therapy to people with active TB, ensuring treatment completion and decreasing risk for TB spread; and, prioritizing the contacts with latent TB to promote completion of treatment and interrupt the cycle of transmission.

Get Your Influenza (Flu) Vaccine Now – It’s Not Too Late!

Flu seasons are unpredictable and can be severe. Even healthy people can get very sick from the flu and spread it to others. Getting an annual flu vaccine is the first and best way to protect yourself and your family from the flu.

The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and lungs. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death for vulnerable populations.

Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu shot now (it takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body). The more people who get vaccinated, the more people will be protected from flu, including older people, very young children, pregnant women and people with certain health conditions who are more vulnerable to serious flu complications. In addition, frequent handwashing, covering your cough & sneeze, and staying home if you are sick can help stop the spread of influenza.

Flu shots are offered at many doctor’s offices, clinics, pharmacies, and college health centers. To find a location near you, type your zip code into the “Flu Vaccine Finder” on this page.
