Is your family ready for flu season?

A flu shot may keep you healthy from the influenza virus.

The flu virus is very contagious. It spreads through coughing, sneezing and other close contact. It’s a respiratory virus that causes fever, chills, a dry cough, muscle aches and fatigue. In some people, the flu will progress to pneumonia and bronchitis, which can be life threatening.

Two great reasons to get a flu shot:

1) To protect yourself from the flu
2) To help your community reduce the number of flu cases

Note: Flu season is typically November through March.
