According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Influenza (the flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. Some people, such as older people, young children, and people with certain health conditions, are at high risk for serious flu complications. The best way to prevent the flu is by getting vaccinated each year.


Please contact your healthcare provider, your local county health department, or visit a nearby pharmacy to get further information on a variety of vaccinations.
