2013/2014 Flu Season

In order to ensure that you are protected for the flu season, the CDC recommends getting the flu shot every year for individuals 6 months of age and older. The flu vaccine protects against the three main strains of flu that research predicts will be the most prominent. A great way to get prepared is getting the shot early in the year because it will help you get through the flu season. The preventive steps that you can take to avoid getting the flu is staying away from sick people and washing your hands with plenty of soap and water. If you are wondering where you can get the flu vaccine, there are many clinics, doctor’s offices, pharmacies, and college health centers that offer the vaccine. Here, at Valley Occupational Medical Center, we are offering the flu shots. So do not hesitate to give us a call for more information!
