Flu Season is here - stop the spread of germs!

Flu season is upon us and it's not too late to get your flu shot. Some local pharmacies, as well as Dartmouth Health Connect, still have vaccine available. Please call first to confirm availability. 

There are many steps you can take to stay healthy including washing your hands frequently with soap, avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth, and cleaning and disinfecting surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu.
