The Ashley City Council has a tax tangle to unravel.

It makes a whole lot of sense to get a flu shot

Fever, cough, muscle aches. Influenza season is here. But there is a way to dodge the dreaded illness. The N.D. Department of Health urges everyone 6 months old and older to get an influenza immunization every year to not only avoid getting influenza, but to keep it from spreading to family members. Tara Brandner, FNP at AMC Clinic in Ashley said, “We haven’t had any breakouts yet this year, but it is early in the flu season.” An annual vaccination is the most effective way to avoid influenza, and it’s never too late to be immunized. “Some people think that you can get the flu from the flu vaccine and that’s not the case,” according to Molly Howell, immunization program manager with the N.D. Department of Health, Division of Disease Control.
