It’s National Influenza Vaccination Week – Get Protected

This week, December 2 – 8, has been designated as National Influenza Vaccination Week by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Although flu vaccines are available throughout the flu season, it’s never to early to get your annual flu shot, particularly if you are a senior or very young child. The flu vaccine CANNOT cause a person to get the flu, and in many cases can lessen the severity of flu symptoms if you do contract the flu after you receive your immunization.

The CDC recommends that individuals receive the vaccine each year, so don’t skip this opportunity just because you got one last year. Make this week the week you get immunized so you can enjoy a safe and healthy holiday season.
