Get your flu shot!

It’s flu season! That’s no reason to celebrate, but it’s a good reason to be prepared. This week is National Influenza Vaccination Week. Get yourself vaccinated to help protect the people around you: especially those more vulnerable to serious illness, like babies and young children, older people, and people with chronic health conditions. Getting your shot helps keep the flu from spreading.
