Flu Season: 2019-2020
Influenza is a serious contagious respiratory illness, and the best way to prevent it is by getting vaccinated every year. People who get the flu vaccine are not only protecting themselves, but also reducing the risk of spreading flu to others. Vaccination against the flu is especially important for American Indians and Alaska Natives, who have been found to be at high risk of developing complications from the flu. Studies have shown that people who get vaccinated will have fewer flu illnesses and doctor visits and miss less work due to influenza. Vaccination also reduces the risk of flu-related hospitalizations. Protect yourself, your family, and your community by getting your vaccination today.
