Stay Healthy This Flu Season

Protect your family from the flu this season by staying up to date on your vaccines.

  • Officials recommend getting a flu shot early because it takes the vaccine 2 to 4 weeks to become effective.
  • A flu vaccine reduces your risk of becoming ill and lessens the severity of the flu if you do get it.

Call today to schedule an appointment with your physician to get this year’s flu shot.
