MDMH offer flu shot clinic

Medical professionals say it is not too late to vaccinate, even if you have had the flu this year.

Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital is hosting a Flu Clinic, Monday, Feb. 24.

Registered nurses Alida Merritt and Gail Simpson shared the importance of vaccinations.

“There are multiple entities trying to ensure that people in the community have the right information to make informed decisions about immunizations,” Merritt said. “Unfortunately, there is misinformation about immunizations that despite retractions about those theories and statements, despite an abundance of evidence people still believe that (mis) information.”

She said there is a younger generation that has not been immunized and medical caregivers are starting to see a resurgence of the diseases that the medical community in the United States thought it had eliminated.

Measles is one example.

Merritt said sharing information from reliable evidence-based resources is key.

“As professionals, we need to share our personal investment in immunization and how it protects us, our patients and community,” she said.
