2018-2019 Flu Shot Information
Flu season is upon us, and it is important to get vaccinated. Last season, nearly 400 North Carolinians died from the flu. The best way to protect yourself, your family, your classmates and your co-workers against the flu is to get the annual flu vaccination. With many local options available, including pharmacies and drug stores, getting vaccinated is more convenient than ever.
It is recommended that everyone 6 months of age and older get a flu vaccine. For people who are high risk, the flu can be especially dangerous. This includes infants under 6 months of age, people over 65 years old, and those with chronic medical conditions. If you are a parent, caregiver, or family member of someone who is high risk, it is also very important that you are vaccinated.
