Learn the best reasons to get vaccinated

The best way to help prevent infection is to get yourself
and all eligible family members vaccinated

The flu is a serious respiratory disease that spreads easily. Everyone is at risk of getting it. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that an annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to reduce the chances that you will get the flu and spread it to others.

Note: No one vaccine is right for everyone, so talk to your doctor or pharmacist about which may be right for you and each member of your family.

Just as diseases such as chicken pox may be prevented by vaccination, the same holds true with the flu—especially for children.

Since kids are twice as likely to catch the flu as adults, make sure your eligible children get vaccinated.
