IMPORTANT HEALTH MESSAGE FOR EVERYONE – GET YOUR FLU SHOT!
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone six months and older be vaccinated against the flu. It’s especially important that people at high risk for getting complications from the flu—such as pneumonia—get the vaccine. That high risk group includes kids younger than five years old; adults 65 and older; pregnant women; and people who have chronic health conditions, such as asthma, diabetes or heart disease. You can get the vaccine any time during flu season – just be sure and get it as early as you can.
