The staff at LeFlore County Health Department would like to say “Thank you” to all of the citizens in LeFlore County who participated in the community and school influenza vaccination events during October. Proper hand washing, covering coughs and sneezes along with taking a flu shot has proven to be the best prevention of influenza each year.
We would also like to thank all school staff that helped with the organization of the events at school, Pocola City Hall, City of Poteau for the use of the Donald W. Reynolds Center to hold the drive through flu shot event. Also, thanks go to our local media-Poteau Daily News, Heavener Ledger, OKWelcome, and Poteau Chamber of Commerce for the advertising.
And many thanks go to Choctaw Nation Health Care for providing the vaccine and their help during the events.
