Join Flu Free Florida by Getting Your Flu Shot This Fall “Windows Down, Sleeves Up”

Full Story
Fernandina Beach, Fla. - The Florida Department of Health in Nassau is reminding all Floridians to get their flu shot before the height of the upcoming flu season. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), last year's record-breaking flu season resulted in 80,000 deaths in the United States, which is the highest number of deaths from the flu in over three decades. Protect yourself and those you love this season by getting by getting your flu shot soon.

Last Wednesday, September 26th, the community met to hear the findings of the recently completely health assessments from the Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnership (MAPP) process. After review and discussion, the community voted on NEW health issues to be addressed in the 2019-20121 Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). These issues are: 1. Housing and Healthy Places, 2. Access to Care, 3. Behavioral Health and Substance Abuse, 4. Health Disparities and 5. Community Support.

We are currently establishing short term workgroups which will create goals and action steps for these health areas. If you are interested in joining this process, please call or email Mary von Mohr 904-557-9133.
