Happy, Healthy Holidays

Happy, Healthy Holidays

The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) reminds Iowans that vaccinations and healthy behaviors are the best ways to prevent the spread of illness during this holiday season. “There is still time to get a flu vaccination to offer protection over the holidays,” said IDPH Medical Director, Dr. Patricia Quinlisk. “As people gather for meals and parties, or travel by planes and automobiles, they’re more likely to spread illness around. Receiving the flu vaccine will help you stay healthy to enjoy all the festivities, and will also keep you from making others sick.”
