Important Information About the Flu Vaccine

Important Information About the Flu Vaccine

If 2020 has brought us anything positive, it has most definitely presented a renewed acquaintance with the importance of one's health.  The health and safety of  our self, our families and our community is of the highest priority. The flu season always hits hard, but this year is different. There is a looming threat of a “twindemic,” which is the combination of a severe flu season and the current pandemic. Even a mild flu season can disrupt hospitals that have already been stretched by the surge of COVID-19 cases. While there is no vaccine yet for COVID-19, there is one for influenza and we as health care providers want to urge you to get the flu shot to reduce the risk of widespread outbreaks.

Click on this link from a recent article published by the American Medical Association (AMA) that breaks down into 8 simple things we want you and your loved ones to know about the flu vaccine. 

Call your primary care doctor, visit your local pharmacy or contact Women's Health Center to get your flu shot today!
