Flu Vaccines are Here!
A flu vaccine is the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone 6 months and older get a flu vaccine. This season, protect yourself and those around you by getting a flu vaccine at your local Sempert’s Drug Good Neighbor Pharmacy.
Even Healthy People Need a Flu Vaccine
Influenza (flu) is a contagious disease which affects the lungs and can lead to serious illness, including pneumonia. Even healthy people can get sick enough to miss work or school for a significant amount of time or even be hospitalized. Pregnant women, young children, older people, and people with certain chronic medical conditions like asthma, diabetes and heart disease are at increased risk of serious flu-related complications, so getting a yearly flu vaccine is especially important for them.
