Stay Healthy All Season Long

Don't let the flu get you this year! The best possible way to protect yourself from the flu is by getting a seasonal flu vaccine every year. Not only will it lower your chances of getting sick, but it will help those with compromised immune systems in your community.

Every year, thousands of people die from the flu -- and many more come to the hospital because the virus has made them so ill.

That could have been prevented with a quick vaccine early in the season. Flu shots generally work by combining four different viruses, though some vaccines have fewer viruses in an effort to draw a stronger immune response.

While vaccinations should be available well into the winter, it's best to get immunized before the flu hits in your community. Call your doctor or visit a local pharmacy today so you'll stay healthy all season long!
