FLU Infographic

It's Flu Season. Let's Get Vaccinated Today

Who Should Get The Vaccine?

Everyone 6 MONTHS OF AGE AND OLDER should get the flu vaccine. Seasonal flu vaccines have a very good safety track record.

Especially High Risk Folks

It is especially IMPORTANT TO GET THE VACCINE IF YOU, SOMEONE YOU LIVE WITH, OR SOMEONE YOU CARE FOR IS AT HIGH RISK of complications from the flu.

Can I Get the Flu  From The Vaccine?

NO. YOU CAN’T GET THE FLU FROM THE FLU VACCINE. The flu vaccine protects you from the flu, not the common cold. But you may experience side effects. Mild Reactions such as soreness, headaches and fever are common side effects of the flu vaccine.

Two Types of Vaccine
