This year, protecting yourself from the flu is more important than ever. What are some reasons to get a flu shot? When and how can you get a flu shot?
Everyone six months and older should get a flu vaccine every year. It is recommended to get one in September or October, before flu starts spreading in the community, since it takes about two weeks after vaccination for the antibodies to develop and start providing protection. However, receiving a flu shot at any time during flu season, even as late as January, can still provide valuable protection from illness. Learn more about influenza and the flu vaccine at cdc.gov/flu.
You can receive a flu shot through your primary care physician or at a local pharmacy. Flu vaccination will also be available soon through Clay County Public Health Center. Stay tuned with CCPHC on social media or at clayhealth.com for upcoming flu vaccine clinics offered at the health center and throughout the county.
