Get a Flu Shot
Who should get influenza vaccine?
Influenza (“the flu”) is a viral disease that is spread by contact with infected individuals. As the weather gets colder, we will all be spending more time in enclosed spaces with people who may spread the flu virus by coughing and sneezing. It is almost impossible to avoid being exposed to influenza by breathing the air that is contaminated with this virus. Once infected, we may spread the disease to others, including co-workers and family members. Influenza can be extremely serious, and even fatal to the very young, the elderly, and to those who have other health issues.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends influenza vaccinations (“flu shots”) for all people age 6 months and older every year. Some children under the age of 9 may need two shots to be protected. The flu shot is the most effective way of protecting yourself, your family, and your friends from this disease. Coos County Family Health Services has flu shots available at all 3 of our clinical offices. Please call one of these numbers and make an appointment to get your flu shot soon:
