Immunize Against the Flu. EVERY YEAR. EVERY BODY.
- Get the facts on flu!
- Prevention is the best protection!
- The flu costs us all!
- Get your flu vaccine every year!
The severity of a flu season is difficult to predict, but always has serious consequences as last year’s flu season reminded us of. Nearly 60% of flu-associated hospitalizations reported to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) flu surveillance system were in people 18 to 64 years old.
Even healthy children and adults can get the flu and it can be serious. It is recommended that everyone six months and older get immunized each year. Communities greatly benefit when most of the people in their community are immunized. It helps protect those who are unable to get vaccinated. For example:
- Babies who are under six months of age
- People with weak immune systems (due to disease or medical treatments – like asthma, cancer or chemotherapy)
- Unvaccinated pregnant women
- Senior (flu can be deadly)
- Anyone allergic to a vaccine
Protect yourself and those around you by getting your flu vaccine this season!
