Every day in California friends, family members, and co-workers struggle with emotional pain. For some, it is too difficult to talk about this pain, thoughts of suicide, and need for help. Though the warning signs can be subtle, they are there. By recognizing these signs, knowing how to start a conversation, and where to turn for help, you have the power to make a difference – the power to save a life.
While the pandemic is foremost on everyone's minds, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) reminds us of the importance of getting the flu vaccine every year not only to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and the community from getting the flu but also to reduce the burden on our healthcare system. It is not too late to get your flu vaccination. Check with Tulare County Public Health (559-685-5725) or your local pharmacy for more information.
There are vaccines for COVID-19, and many people have questions about them and when they will be made available to the public. The CDC provides information and answers the questions people want to know about the vaccines. Tulare County Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) also provides information about the vaccines and the phases of the Tulare County COVID-19 Schedule for administering them to the public.
