By Dr. Everett Lamm,
12:12PM / Wednesday, October 10, 2018

With flu season around the corner, your health care providers, employers, pharmacists and others are sounding the annual reminder: "Get your annual flu shot." We encourage this for you — and for the people around you, too. We see evidence every year of the benefits of the flu vaccine, and we also see the risks of skipping it.

The flu vaccine has dramatic impacts on public health. However, since strains of the flu may vary from year to year, the vaccine must be received annually. Although the vaccine doesn't guarantee a flu-free winter and perfect health, medical research has convincingly shown that the flu shot reduces flu severity and reduces sick visits,

The nine councilors unanimously endorsed the Public Safety Committee's resolution. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council on Tuesday approved a resolution recommended by the Public Safety Committee to keep the gun range open.   It was a strong rebuke to Mayor Thomas Bernard, who had ordered the range closed to public access effective Jan. 1, 2019, after learning that the city's insurance company would no longer cover it for liability reasons. Its use would be limited to members of the Police Department for employment-related needs.   The order in July came after several meetings held by the committee to discuss ways to improve the range and to hear grievances
