Getting the flu shot is one of the best ways you can decrease your chance of getting the flu during the holidays. Vaccine and private flu mist has arrived at the Bear River Health Department and is available for everyone, ages 6 months and older.* Many insurances are accepted. Out of pocket cost is $25. To save yourself time when getting the immunization, consider downloading this form and bring the completed copy with you to the health department.

Other ways you can prevent the flu this holiday season: Make sure to wash your hands properly. The most common way to pass germs is through touching objects with germs on them or being in contact with someone who is sick. In order to wash your hands properly, wet them, lather for 20 seconds, and then rinse. Use a paper towel to turn off the faucet and avoid touching other commonly touched items like door handles.
