Westchester county executive promotes flu shots
Coughing, sneezing, sniffling? Those are sure signs that flu season is here.
Hoping to promote the importance of flu vaccines, Westchester County Executive George Latimer got a flu shot at the county clinic in White Plains today. "This year, I'm taking the advice I didn't take a year ago by Dr. Ambler and the CDC, which is to get flu shot early in the flu season…this being the end of October, which is the ideal time for it," says Latimer
The clinic says it expects to give out more than 200 flu shots today.
County health officials say it takes two weeks after you get the flu shot for it to be fully effective.
