Mayor Broome Encourages Residents to get Flu Shots

BATON ROUGE, La. — September 30, 2020 — Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome released the following statement:

“Since March, the residents of East Baton Rouge Parish have made significant progress in our effort to combat the coronavirus pandemic. Our residents have seen significant increases in access to testing, decreasing positivity rates, and a continuous effort to re-open our economy. 

Baton Rouge has put forth the effort to recover from a global pandemic, and as we move forward, we must continue to do our part to protect our neighbors, our friends, and our loved ones. 

This fall and winter, it is imperative everyone in our community takes action to reduce the spread of respiratory illnesses, like the flu. I ask all of our residents to be conscious of their actions and exercise caution this flu season. We can all take small, yet significant, steps to protect those around us. This includes: avoiding touching our faces, washing our hands frequently, covering sneezes and coughs, staying at home when sick, avoiding contact with sick people, wearing a mask, and receiving a flu shot.

Getting vaccinated for the flu will help protect our hospitals and clinics from becoming overwhelmed while our healthcare professionals are still fighting the coronavirus pandemic.

East Baton Rouge Parish residents can visit vaccinefinder.org to find out where to receive a flu vaccine. Let's continue to work together in our effort to keep our coworkers, our friends, and our families healthy.”
