Don’t forget your flu shot this year!

While current U.S. flu activity is low overall, localized influenza outbreaks have been reported and activity is expected to increase in the coming weeks.  CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone 6 months and older. Now is a good time to get vaccinated. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for protection to set in.  Flu vaccination can reduce flu illnesses and prevent flu-related hospitalizations. Flu vaccines have been updated for the 2016-2017 season. More than 127 million doses of seasonal influenza vaccine have been distributed at this time.
