Flu Season

Influenza (also known as “flu”) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. The best way to reduce your risk from seasonal flu and its potentially serious complications is to get vaccinated every year. 

For 2021-2022, CDC recommends use of any licensed, age-appropriate flu vaccine as an option for vaccination this season. Learn more at the CDC website.

The flu vaccine is free via Medicare and with most insurance providers.
