The 2017-18 flu season is just around the corner. Visiting Nurses of the Lower Valley is ready to help you get vaccinated.
Flu vaccination is the most important step you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones against flu. Getting the vaccine yearly helps reduce flu illnesses, doctor’s visits and missed work or school. A 2014 study showed that vaccination reduced flu related intensive care hospitalization of children by 74%. Experts report that the vaccine may reduce visits to the doctor by as much as 60%. It is especially important for people over 65 and children younger than 2 years old to get vaccinated. In addition, people with chronic illness such as diabetes, heart disease, lung disease or a weakened immune system should get their flu vaccination.
Protect yourself and those you love, get your flu vaccine today!
