Two Athens hospitals are working together to help residents fight the flu.

Experts at Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center and St. Mary’s Health Care System are urging area residents to take precautions to protect themselves from the flu this season.

“We kind of hope that our message combine will be well-received by the community and that it will better stress the importance of getting a flu vaccine.”

That’s Sydney Walker with Piedmont Athens Regional, she says both facilities recommend getting a flu shot.
