It’s not too late to get the flu vaccine. The flu season has arrived and there have been 25 flu-related hospitalizations confirmed statewide. These hospitalizations are across all the age groups. In years past it is usually the very young and the very old, so its off to a little different start this year.
As families travel and family members return home for the holidays you can be exposed to viruses from other parts of the state.
I recommend that everyone over the age of 6 months should receive either the flu mist or shot. It usually takes about two weeks to develop full immunity, so call our office to make an appointment to protect your family.
