It’s flu season and last week, the Johnson County Healthcare Center’s Board of Trustees adopted a policy that requires hospital personnel to don flu masks if they choose not to be vaccinated.

Dr. Mark Schueler indicated it is a standard that most healthcare centers adhere to during flu season.

Schueler also spoke of the importance of getting the flu vaccination and pointed to a virulent flu season in Australia as an indicator for a rough season in the area…

Hopefully, the vaccine available locally will be the right fit for whatever flu strain happens to hit the local citizens during this winter season.
