Why Get a Flu Vaccination?
Getting a flu shot not only protects you from infection, but also protects those you interact with on a daily basis. Here are some top reasons to get your flu vaccine this year:

•    By getting vaccinated yourself, you are also protecting the people around you who may be more vulnerable to serious influenza illnesses. This includes babies, young children, elderly people, and people with certain chronic health conditions
•     The flu can sometimes be life-threatening and is worth taking the extra step to prevent. According to the CDC, influenza causes about 36,000 deaths every year
•    Because flu viruses change every year, it is important to get a flu shot, even if you got one a year or two ago
