December is Flu Vaccination Month

Tis the season for the flu. Protect yourself and your family.

Although it may sound common, the flu is a serious respiratory illness. It is also highly contagious. Everyone is at risk for getting it and spreading it.

What’s the most effective thing you can do to avoid the flu? Get your flu shot. Health officials say that everyone over 6 months old should get an influenza vaccination every year. Some people may think the flu vaccine can give them the flu. But, the truth is that there is no evidence that links the flu vaccination to infection.

If you are pregnant, have asthma or other lung diseases; you are at a higher risk for developing complications from the flu. Talk with your healthcare provider to learn more about the flu and getting vaccinated.

We’ve teamed up with CJ McCollum and his mom, Kathy, to share ways you can help prevent the flu.

Hello.

We have exciting news to share. ODS is changing its name to Moda Health.

Moda comes from the latin term "modus" and means "a way". We picked it because that's what we are here to do: help our communities find a way to better health.

Together, we can be more, be better.
