It’s National Influenza Vaccination Week!

It’s not too late to get your influenza vaccine if you haven’t done it already. Protect yourself and others especially as we head into the holiday season. Many of us will be traveling and visiting relatives. Influenza is especially prevalent from December through March. Vaccination reduces severity of symptoms and hospitalizations if you do get ill. Vaccination is recommended for everyone over 6 months of age especially those at high risk of complications. This includes children less than 5 years old, adults over 65 years old, pregnant women, and those with chronic medical conditions such as asthma, COPD, heart disease, diabetes.
