It's Flu Season!

Flu Fact: Even healthy people can get the flu. Protect yourself, your loved ones, and those around you by getting the flu vaccination.

Why Get a Flu Shot?

Yearly flu vaccination is the best defense currently available to protect against influenza (flu), a serious illness which sickens millions of people each year, and can be life-threatening.

The flu vaccination:

  • prevents you from getting sick from the flu

  • protects from serious illness for people with chronic health conditions
  • helps protect women during and after pregnancy
  • protects babies several months after birth
