Add getting a flu shot to your “to do list” today!
Friendly reminder again! Get your flu shot!! 🙂
Here is your reminder again….it is flu shot time! If you have gotten your flu shot, good for you! If not, pick up that phone now and make an appointment. Flu season has officially started, and we all need to be protected. Everyone 6 months of age and older needs a flu shot every year. Why? Because the influenza virus changes from year to year. The strains that cause human infection are different each year, so everyone needs the newest vaccine! (We all want the newest and best, right?) Children under the age of 5 are at higher risk for becoming sicker from the influenza virus. Often the flu illness can be mild, but there is more of a risk that children may have severe or even life-threatening complications. It is estimated that each year up to 40% of children are infected with the influenza virus. Flu shot clinicsare happening now. Take a family outing and get Mom, Dad, and children protected today…because it is the right thing to do to keep your child healthy this winter. Add it to your “to do list” today!
