Flu Season

Flu season is on its way and it is time to start scheduling a flu shot for you and your family. The annual flu shot is a good way to protect yourself and loved ones. By receiving the flu shot you reduce the risk of getting the flu, doctor’s visits, and missed time from work and school. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stated that the vaccine showed a 60% effectiveness during the last season. The shot protects against three influenza viruses research has shown to be the most common during flu season. Along with the shot make sure you wash your hands, cover your mouth, avoid close contact with those who may be sick, and stay home if you are sick.
