No matter who we call family, when we choose to get the influenza (flu) vaccine, we’re protecting them. That’s especially true for those who are at higher risk for a bad case of the flu, like children, older people, and those with underlying risk factors like heart disease, stroke, obesity and diabetes.

Get your flu immunization as soon as possible – and make sure your loved ones get theirs, too. Here are more reasons why you should:

  • Catching the flu can weaken your ability to fight off COVID-19. 
  • A flu shot is clinically proven to reduce your chances of hospitalization.
  • Flu shots are quick and administered with COVID safety precautions.

Make time to get a flu shot today!

Help save lives by protecting yourself, your loved ones and your co-workers.
