New flu vaccine offered

Flu season is here, and we have the new quadrivalent vaccine to help protect you and your family from flu this year. The quadrivalent vaccine protects against four strains of influenza, instead of the typical three.

To find a flu clinic near you, visit the Flu Shot webpage.

Use Condom Sense website unveiled

Teens now have a website to visit to get accurate, teen-friendly information about condoms, birth control and sex. The newly developed Use Condom Sense website, created by the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program, also offers a teen hotline and a mechanism to ask questions of a “sexpert” (health educator).
