Stay Healthy - Get a Flu Shot!
Flu season is right around the corner. The best way to protect yourself and your family is to get a flu shot every year. Because there’s no vaccine for COVID-19 yet, it’s more important than ever to get a flu shot. This will help prevent getting both viruses at the same time and could help keep you out of the hospital.
Who Should Get a Flu Shot
Everyone over the age of 6 months should get a flu shot every year. Certain people are more at risk for getting very sick when they have flu, including:
- Children younger than 5 years old
- Adults 65 years old and older
- Pregnant women
- Residents of nursing home facilities and long-term care facilities
- People with other medical conditions, including asthma, chronic lung disease, heart disease, diabetes, kidney and liver disorders
We encourage you to get your annual flu shot before November 1, but we can vaccinate you at any time. If you are ill, you should wait until you feel better to get the flu shot.
Why Should I Get a Flu Shot Every Year?
Every year the flu virus changes so the vaccine needs to change too. This is why getting your flu shot every year offers better protection. Getting a flu shot may not totally prevent the disease, but it can lessen its effects and minimize your chances of getting seriously ill and being hospitalized.
