It’s cold out there!  Stay indoors to reduce your risk for cold related illness if you can, or find a warming center near you at  https://ogi.oa.mo.gov/DHSS/warmingCenter/index.html #WinterSafety

In a typical year, over 100,000 Missourians become sick from the flu. Many Missourians of all ages become seriously ill and some are even hospitalized due to the flu. 2020 is anything but a typical year, and health officials are urging Missourians to get the flu vaccine by the end of October and say, “Boo to the Flu.” A flu vaccine is recommended annually for anyone who is six months of age or older and does not have an increased risk for a serious adverse reaction. To ensure Missouri has the capacity to care for COVID-19 patients, a simple flu shot can be very impactful in keeping more Missourians healthy thus lessening the strain on Missouri’s health care systems. It is also unknown how a person could be affected by experiencing both viruses simultaneously, making it all the more important that everyone who is able to, gets their flu vaccine this year. For these reasons, DHSS has launched a Flu Vaccine Campaign specifically targeting Missouri’s more susceptible populations, including older adults.

Long-Term Care

 

Long-Term Care is a variety of services that help people with health or personal needs and activities of daily living over a period of time. The fact is, 60 percent of people over 65 will need some type of long-term care. Long-term care does not mean a complete loss of independence or control over your life. The keys to owning your future are planning early and wisely, knowing your options, and taking action. It is about living well.
