Flu Season Information
Medical experts say that everyone over 6 months old should get a yearly flu shot. It is even more important to get the shot if you are over 50 or have an ongoing health problem, like diabetes, heart or lung disease. Every year over 36,000 people die and 200,000 people go to the hospital because of flu. The flu shot is your best defense.
