The flu season is among us and that means getting the flu vaccine.
Why is it important to get vaccinated? According to the CDC, influenza is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalizations and sometimes death. The disease can affect people differently and can be spread to others.
After 6 months of age, anyone can get the vaccination. It is especially important for people 65 years of age and older to get vaccinated since about 90% of influenza deaths occur in that age range.
There are several flu vaccine options for the 2014-2015 flu season. Click here for more details.
