Don't let your health "Fall" by the wayside. It is important to maintain a good diet and exercise. Check out Atlantic County's Walking Guide for tips about how to stay active. Fall also means school is back in session. Make sure children are up to date with vaccines and get a flu shot to protect yourself and your loved ones. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine every season. Wash hands, cover coughs and sneezes, and stay home when sick. And remember when the clocks "Fall" back, it's a good time to check the expiration dates on your emergency supplies and go over your emergency plan.
