Flu Shots

Steer clear of sickness this flu season.

Overview

Nearly 80,000 Americans died as a result of the flu last year. The flu is a contagious respiratory infection that is easily spread from person to person. Symptoms often become severe and can result in hospitalization. Young children, senior citizens, pregnant women and those with chronic health conditions are especially vulnerable to flu complications. While there are other preventative measures like washing your hands and avoiding others who are sick, the flu vaccine is the most effective measure to avoid the virus. The CDC recommends that individuals over 6 months old should receive flu vaccinations each year.
