TILLAMOOK COUNTY COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTERS: National Flu Vaccination Week Dec. 5-9 – Get Your Flu Shot Now!

National Influenza Vaccination Week (Dec 5-9) is a call to all 6 months old and older to get their annual flu vaccine if they have not already.

Flu remains a significant public health concern, especially as many hospital systems are in crisis with the increased cases of other respiratory viruses. This week is a reminder that there is still time to get a flu vaccine (the only vaccine that protects against flu) to prevent flu illness and potentially serious flu complications. In fact, during recent flu seasons, 9 out of 10 people hospitalized with flu had at least one underlying health condition – that’s why getting an annual flu vaccine is especially important for people with certain chronic health conditions.

A flu shot is the best way to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your community from flu. Get your flu shot now. There’s still time.
