Now that the holiday season has come to an end and we’ve set our New Year’s goals, we want to encourage you to add just one more thing to your list—schedule your flu shot.
Anyone can get the flu, even those of us who are healthy, and the fact is serious problems related to the flu can happen at any age. Flu season doesn’t end until March, and as we continue to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, fighting the flu has become even more important.
Women who are pregnant or have given birth in the last two weeks AND children under the age of five are at a higher risk of severe flu-related problems (i.e., hospitalization). Fortunately, getting vaccinated is a simple step you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones against the flu.
In 2021, let’s fight the flu together—as a community.
