Time to Get Your Flu Shot

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention states that getting an annual flu vaccine is the first and best way to protect yourself and your family from the flu. Flu vaccination can reduce flu illnesses, doctors’ visits, and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations. The more people who get vaccinated, the more people will be protected from flu, including older people, very young children, pregnant women and people with certain health conditions who are more vulnerable to serious flu complications. Also according to the CDC, in the 2016-2017 influenza season roughly 70% of flu cases that required hospitalization were in adults 65 and over, of those hospitalized less than 15% had been vaccinated. Overall, vaccination reduces a persons risk of severe influenza by 42%. Ask your doctor or pharmacist about getting your flu shot!
