2023/2024 Flu season
Getting a flu shot is important for your health and the health of our community.
Although flu may mean simply feeling sick and a week or two off work for healthy adults, it can take the life of a senior or someone with a less healthy immune system.
Similar to COVID-19, your flu shot & lack of illness may prevent someone else—an older or high-risk person you know—from being exposed and then hospitalized with severe disease.
Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website for more information about flu shots.
