All community members, age 3 and over, are encouraged to participate if your family has not previously received a vaccination.
Influenza is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Every flu season is different, and influenza infection can affect people differently. Even people with a history of great health can get very sick from the flu and spread it to others. Seasonal flu vaccine protects against three influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during the upcoming seasons.
