Pinal County Public Health flu shots available starting October 11

October 11, 2017 - 2:11 pm
Influenza (also known as flu) causes thousands of deaths each year. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone six months and older gets a yearly flu shot. Getting vaccinated each year against flu protects you and the people around you who may be more vulnerable to serious illness due to the flu, such as pregnant women, young children, people age 65 and older, and people with asthma or other chronic medical conditions.
 
To prevent the spread of flu and protect your family, you can take the following steps:
  • Get vaccinated as early as possible!
  • Wash your hands with soap and water often.
  • Disinfect surfaces.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze.
  • Stay home from work or school when you are sick.
