Saint Paul – Ramsey County Public Health is asking residents to complete the Metro SHAPE survey to determine the health status and needs of the community. Approximately 6,247 random county households have received mailings to take an online or paper version of Metro SHAPE. The voluntary, confidential, survey helps local public health departments identify health issues by providing vital information about the factors and trends affecting the health of adults living in the area. Only households that have been randomly selected and received mailings are invited to complete the survey.

Did You Get Your Flu Shot? It's Not Too Late.

The Minnesota Department of Health reports flu is widespread in Minnesota. It is not too late to get a flu shot this season! Getting your flu shot also helps others – like infants who are too young and others who can’t be vaccinated for medical reasons – because it reduces the number of people spreading flu.

While the vaccine won’t prevent all the flu this year, the flu shot can still provide protection and might prevent going to the hospital, or death. Stay healthy by getting a flu shot, staying home when you are sick, covering your cough and frequently washing your hands.
