Area Emergency Rooms

Some area emergency rooms are breaking records as to the number of patients being tested or treated for flu in the Panhandle.

We’ve all heard it to get your flu vaccinations, especially those living with heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic lung diseases are at a higher risk for developing lung disease.

A lot of us will be gathering during the holiday season, at Christmas parties, friendly gatherings or with family.

Health experts urge that you protect yourself and others with flu vaccinations, for anyone over six months old.
