Blanchfield Army Community Hospital (BACH)Fort Campbell, KY – Flu season is here but there are measures individuals can take to reduce the risk of getting sick. “The single best way to prevent seasonal flu is to get an annual flu vaccination,” said Maj. Simone Edwards, chief of public health nursing at Blanchfield Army Community Hospital (BACH).

“The flu vaccine can reduce an individual’s chance of getting the flu or reduce the severity because the vaccine prompts the body into creating antibodies that will fight off the virus,” Edwards stated.
