The importance of getting a flu shot:
 
  • The CDC recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older should get a yearly flu shot.
  • Getting a flu shot will not only protect you but also the people around you against the flu.
  • A flu shot will make your illness milder if you do get sick.
  • The flu vaccination can reduce flu illnesses, doctors’ visits, and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations.
