Poverty and poor health go hand-in-hand. It’s time to fix our country’s growing income inequality and the unhealthy stresses it puts on adults and children. See today’s NPHW fact sheet: Increase economic mobility http://ow.ly/k7cg50oueF5

Prevent Violence for National Public Health Week. Youth violence and bullying are major public health issues for individuals, families, and communities. Both are complex problems, which, over time, impose serious effects on targets, bystanders and aggressors. Solutions require widespread, sustained efforts in families, schools, and communities. Be a part of the solution to bullying and violence in your community. http://ow.ly/41ez50ooh5K #NPHW

It's National Public Health Week and we are celebrating "Creating the Healthiest Nation. For science. For action. For health."

Last Year, The Flu Put Him In A Coma. This Year He's Getting The Shot

Health Department staff and Loudoun Medical Reserve Corps volunteers gave nearly 300 free flu vaccinations today to adults and children >9 years old. If you have not received a flu shot yet this season, please #getafluvax soon!

When 39-year-old Charlie Hinderliter got the flu last winter, he ended up in a medically induced coma and spent 58 days hospitalized. Serious, even fatal, complications can hit patients of any age.

We’re in the middle of our annual flu clinic! Thank you to staff and Loudoun Medical Reserve Corps volunteers for making this available to the community!

A flu vaccine can keep you from getting sick with flu, helping protect you, your loved ones, and the moments that matter most.

10/03/2018

Last flu season, 80,000 people died from the flu and even more got sick. Flu vaccination can prevent you from getting the flu and can lessen the symptoms and severity of the illness if you do get sick.
