Flu Vaccine

Preventing the flu this year will be more important than ever before. In the fall, we usually see an increase in cases of the flu, the common cold, and allergies. But this year, we could also see a spike in COVID-19 cases. So as we head into the new season, we all need to do our part to prevent the spread of these illnesses. Here’s what you need to know to keep yourself and your family safe and healthy.

Most people who get the flu will get a mild illness and will recover without medical care. Others, such as young children, pregnant women, older adults, nursing home residents, and people with other health conditions are more likely to suffer from flu-related complications. You can help prevent the spread of influenza by getting a flu shot, practicing good hand washing, maintaining social distance and staying home when you are sick.
