Why it's important to get the flu shot:
- Influenza is not "just a cold" - it's a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even fatality. The flu shot is not just for people with health problems, healthy people can also get very sick from the flu and spread it to others.
- By getting the flu shot, you are protecting yourself, your family and others around you who may be at risk of flu complications - such as young children or seniors. The flu shot protects against a few different flu viruses and is the best protection against the flu.
- Get your flu shot early in the flu season so that you are already protected when the flu starts circulating in your community.
