Get Your Flu Shot Today
Choose family over flu to prevent serious illness
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.
