Prioritize Your Health: Prepare for Flu Season with JCHC Flu Clinics
As the leaves change and the air turns crisper, we not only welcome the beauty of our midwestern fall season, but also prepare ourselves for the start of flu season. The importance of getting an annual flu vaccine cannot be stressed enough, and JCHC Clinics is here to help you safeguard your health this flu season.
Understanding the Annual Influenza Vaccine
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the annual influenza vaccination for all individuals aged 6 months and older. The flu vaccine is carefully formulated each year to provide protection against the strains of the influenza virus that healthcare professionals anticipate will be the most common during the upcoming season. This means the flu shot you receive is specifically designed to defend against the prevalent flue strains for that year. By getting vaccinated, you not only protect yourself but also contribute to community immunity, reducing the spread of the virus.
