Are you getting a flu shot this year?

Yes No

Glad to hear it! The sooner you get your flu shot, the sooner you’ll be protected. Getting vaccinated can help stop the flu from spreading in your family and in your community. That’s critical — because the flu can lead to serious complications for children, seniors, pregnant women and people with heart disease, diabetes and lung disease. Get a flu shot every year — and encourage others to follow your lead.

It can also lead to hospitalization, an increased risk of heart attack or stroke, and even death. Getting vaccinated protects you, your family and your community. Please reconsider your decision and talk to your doctor or health care provider.
