Stay Healthy - Get a Flu Shot!

The best way to protect yourself and your family is to get a flu shot every year. It’s more important than ever to get a flu shot. This will help prevent getting both the flu and COVID-19 at the same time and could help keep you out of the hospital. (Information about the COVID-19 vaccine. Información sobre la Vacuna del COVID-19)

Who Should Get a Flu Shot

Everyone over the age of 6 months should get a flu shot every year, especially those younger than 5 years, older than 65 years, pregnant women, and anyone who has asthma, chronic lung disease, heart disease, diabetes, kidney and liver disorders.

We encourage you to get your annual flu shot before December 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.
