Vaccines are important for helping to prevent against serious infections. Please talk to your healthcare provider if you have any additional questions regarding the risks and benefits of immunizations.

The flu shot is your best defense against the flu and its complications and is recommended for everyone 6 months and older, especially those who are at high risk of complications from the flu.
It is important that you get a new flu shot every year because the type of flu virus usually changes from year to year and the effectiveness of the flu shot can wear off over time.
The flu shot will become available in October. Please check our website for updates on how you can get your flu shot once it becomes available.
