A flu shot protects you
and those around you.

  • People with chronic health conditions—such as asthma, diabetes, or immune disorders—are at additional risk and are strongly encouraged to get a flu shot.
  • This flu shot is ‘inactivated’, meaning you cannot become sick from obtaining the immunization
  • Flu shots help reduce the transmission of the virus if more people are immunized; the flu won’t spread as fast in a highly immunized population.
  • Get vaccinated early. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body and provide protection against the flu.
  • Vaccination needs to be done annually.
