Flu Vaccine Protects You, Your Family and Our Community!

The single most effective protection against flu is getting a flu vaccine. It is recommended that all people aged 6 months and older receive a flu vaccine every year.

Many additional measures have been put in place this year to keep flu clinic staff and clients healthy and safe.

Registration is required.

Why the Flu Vaccine is More Important than Ever this Year

It’s likely that flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will both spread this fall and winter. Healthcare systems could be overwhelmed treating both patients with flu and patients with COVID-19.

The flu and COVID-19 have many similar symptoms (cough, chills, fever, body aches). This means getting a flu vaccine this year is more important than ever to protect you and your family.

While getting a flu vaccine will not protect against COVID-19, there are many important benefits, such as:
  • Flu vaccines have been shown to reduce the risk of illness, hospitalization, and death.
  • Getting a flu vaccine can also save healthcare resources for the care of patients with COVID-19.
  • Flu vaccine can offer a peace of mind. You are:
    • Less likely to wonder if you have the flu or COVID-19
    • More likely to be able to continue going to work or school
    • Less likely to be required to isolate or quarantine
