Flu Shots
Will Be Given in Schools next Month

 

Officials
with the Fond du Lac County Health Department are reminding parents that they
will soon be in schools across the county administering the flu vaccine. Fond du Lac County Public Health Officer Kim Mueller
says they get out to 55 schools each year in the county. She says the flu
vaccine sessions will begin in mid-October and parents should be on the lookout
for consent forms that will be coming home with their child. Mueller says the
one difference for parents to be aware of in this year’s program is that the
flu mist will not be given. She says that there will be individual clinics set
up in November and December as well for kids who want their parents present
when they get a shot.

 

Giving
to Charity? Do Your Research!

 

With
the recent flooding around the state and other natural disasters or tragic
events that have happened in the nation, an official with the Wisconsin
Department of Ag, Trade and Consumer Protection reminds people to do their
research before giving to charity. Frank Frassetto with DATCP says that often
charities will “pop up” following tragic events, and some are not legitimate.
He says to look up charities by name at charity navigator dot org or give dot
org before you give. He also adds that under state law, most charities are
required to register with the state Department of Financial Institutions if
they solicit in Wisconsin
or if they have people soliciting on their behalf. Through the Department of
Financial Institutions, people can find out how much of the money going to the
charity actually goes to the cause itself. You can find out more at datcp dot
