Stop the flu, one shot at a time.


Stop the flu, one shot at a time.

This year, more than ever before, it’s important to get the flu shot, not only to protect yourself but your community. Herd immunity or community immunity arises when enough people get the flu shot, making its spread from person to person more unlikely.

When you get a flu shot, you’re not only protecting yourself and your family but your friends and neighbors.

  • The flu is never fun

    You still wear a seatbelt even though you’re an expert driver, right? Think of a flu shot like a seatbelt for your health! Reduce your risk of getting the flu by 40-60% when you get vaccinated.

  • Who should get the flu shot

    Everyone six months and older should get a flu vaccine annually. If you’re over 65, you will have to get the double-strength flu shot. If you have experienced an allergic reaction to vaccinations in the past, talk to your provider about alternatives.

  • The best time to get a flu shot

    There's never a wrong time to get the flu shot, but the CDC recommends getting one by the end of October.
