Don't Forget Your Flu Shot
Each year, everyone six months of age and older should get a flu vaccine to prevent sickness, healthcare visits, hospitalizations, and deaths from influenza. Vaccines like the flu shot are superheroes in the fight against disease. They serve to:
- Protect people from common but occasionally dangerous diseases (like the flu).
- Protect the most vulnerable members of our community who often can’t get immunized—including babies, pregnant women, the elderly, and anyone with a compromised immune system.
