It's that time of season...flu season

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.
