CT DPH reports first influenza deaths of 2019-2020 season
The Connecticut Department of Public Health (DPH) on Thursday is reporting the first influenza deaths of the 2019-2020 season, and is reminding residents to get vaccinated to protect their health against the flu. As the holiday season approaches and social activities increase, now is the time to protect yourself, family, and loved ones. Vaccination remains the most effective protection as the flu season can be long, running from October to May, peaking between December and March. “I advise all Connecticut residents to take the proactive step to protect their health during flu season by getting a flu shot,” said DPH Commissioner Renee D. Coleman-Mitchell. “Flu vaccines are safe and effective, and can either help prevent you from becoming infected by this serious virus, or help lessen your symptoms if you do get sick. Talk to your health care provider, pharmacist or local health department about the easiest way to get a flu shot.”
