With the flu season fast approaching it is important that you and your family are properly protected this season. Influenza is a very serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and even death. Flu season generally lasts between the months of October to as late as May and affects millions of Americans each year.

During that time period, the flu virus is being circulated throughout the United States more frequently. The best way to drastically reduce your chances of getting the flu virus or spreading it to others is through a flu shot.

The flu vaccination works by injecting dead flu cells into your body. Over the course of two weeks, your body responds by creating antibodies that provide protection against the particular flu strain and the virus itself.

Common symptoms of the Flu:

  • High fever of 100F or higher
  • Coughing
  • Sore Throat
  • Headache
  • Chills
  • Fatigue
  • Vomiting
