Flu Vaccines

 

Prevent Seasonal Flu by Getting Vaccinated!
 
The annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to reduce your chances of contracting the seasonal flu and lessen the chance of transmitting it to others. The flu vaccine acts as shield protecting you and others from the seasonal influenza virus. If you are at higher risk of developing serious flu complications, the flu vaccine is especially important.  As we continue our battle with COVID-19, consider getting the flu vaccine to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your community. 
CDC recommends everyone 6 months and older get vaccinated every flu season. Talk to your health care provider about the flu vaccine, especially if you have an allegoric reaction after a previous dose of the influenza vaccine or has ever had Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS). Read more about the flu vaccine
