Donna Skoda, Health Commissioner for Summit County Public Health, says it's not too late to get a flu shot. She encourages everyone to do so because this is a really bad flu season. Also, she says that sometimes you might think you have the flu, but you could be suffering from the effects of carbon monoxide poisoning, so it's a good idea to have a CO detector in your home to ensure your safety. Speaking of gasses in the atmosphere that can hurt your health, Donna's department will send you a free radon screening test that will help you determine if your home has a radon problem. Just call Summit County Public Health at 330.926.5600 or go to the website.
