Flu Vaccine Protects You,Your Family and Our Community!

Get your flu vaccine! Call the Health Department to schedule your appointment.

With the ongoing presence of flu, COVID—19 and monkeypox, your immune system may have a lot to fight off. It is more important than ever to stay current on your flu vaccine. Flu viruses are constantly changing, and an updated vaccine helps ensure that your immune system can fight the current forms of the flu and prevent severe illness.  

To receive a flu vaccine from the Health Department, schedule an appointment at the Health Department's Government Services Center clinic. 

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. A person’s immune protection from vaccination declines over time, so an annual flu vaccine is needed for optimal protection.  

Why the Flu Vaccine is More Important than Ever this Year

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

The flu, COVID-19 and monkeypox have many similar symptoms (chills, fever, body aches).

While getting a flu vaccine will not protect against COVID-19 or monkeypox, 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 save healthcare resources for the care of patients with COVID-19 and monkeypox.
  • Flu vaccine can offer a peace of mind. You are less likely to miss school or work.
