Health Hints

If you haven’t already done so, now is the time to get your flu shot so you will have full protection by the peak of flu season. Everyone 6 months and older should get vaccinated. Symptoms such as body aches and malaise are common after receiving the flu vaccine, but the influenza vaccine does not cause the flu.
