Flu shots are an added defense when the flu season strikes over the winter months. Typically, we offer flu shot clinics starting in October, and will post clinic dates here in September.
Why should people get vaccinated against the flu?
Every year, the strain of flu that spreads can vary, and even a strong immune system can be beaten down by the flu. Influenza can lead to a stay in the hospital and in severe cases, even death.
Typically, seniors are the most vulnerable to the effects of the flu. Regular vaccination not only helps you from getting the flu, but also protects the most vulnerable as well.
