Flu Vaccine

The 2014-2015 flu vaccine is not available yet. Please check this page in September for information about the vaccine and when you can get it.

Who Should Get a Flu Shot?

The CDC recommends immunization for everyone 6 months and older. Flu vaccination is especially important for high-risk individuals, including children, pregnant women, adults over the age of 50, and those with chronic conditions. Caregivers for high-risk individuals should be vaccinated.

Once you receive your vaccine, it takes about two weeks for it to begin protecting you. The vaccine will give you protection against the flu until it's time for a vaccination next fall.
