It’s not too late to get a Flu Shot
It’s still not too late to get a flu shot, which can often diminish the severity of symptoms a person might experience.
Flu shots are available at your doctor’s office, pharmacy, local walk-in clinic or grocery store. Everyone six months of age and older should get the flu vaccine each season. The number of influenza cases escalated statewide heading into 2019.
How Veterans can ensure they are Receiving Earned Benefits
The Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs encourages veterans to use the New Year to review their benefits with a professional to ensure they are receiving the benefits earned through their service.
A Veterans Service Officer can check to see if changes in a veteran’s circumstances or changes to benefit policies may have modified the programs a veteran may be eligible to receive. Find out how to safeguard paperwork and review benefits here.

Now is the Best Time to Test for Radon
Winter is the best time to test your home for radon, an odorless, naturally occurring, radioactive gas that’s the second-leading cause of lung cancer.
About 40 percent of Pennsylvania homes have radon levels above the EPA’s action guideline of 4 picocuries per liter. Testing is the only way to know if your home has elevated levels of radon, and it’s easy. You can find out how here.
