UPHP Clinical Coordinator Renee Anderton

Marquette, MIOctober 14, 2021 – On our latest Upper Peninsula Health Plan Update, we heard more about the flu season and vaccinations with UPHP Clinical Coordinator Renee Anderton, CHES.

Anderton spoke about a wide array of information with Mark & Walt in the Morning including what the flu really is and what are the main symptoms.

Anderton explained what some of the key things that people can do to prevent getting the flu this season, including getting a flu vaccine.

She also dispelled a lot of the common myths and misconceptions that can lead people to resist being vaccinated as well as who should get one and when.

Anderton said flu vaccines can be given at your doctor’s office, pharmacy or local health department. Most are available for free or for a low cost.

She added that getting the flu vaccine will not only reduce flu cases, but also reduce symptoms that might be confused with COVID-19. Preventing the flu will also help reduce doctor visits and hospitalizations, which can also help ease pressure on our health care workers.
