Begin preparing for flu season now

Staying on top of your health becomes increasingly important as we approach flu season. However, this year due to COVID-19, it will be even more important than usual. Flu season generally begins in October, so now is the perfect time to start taking steps to help you and your family stay as healthy as possible during this time. These tips can help.

First, and foremost, get your flu shot—and encourage your whole family to be vaccinated. Everyone age 6 months or older should have an annual flu shot. It’s especially important for people at higher risk including young children, pregnant women, people age 65 and older, those with weakened immune systems or chronic illness such as asthma, and those who care for others who are at high risk. Call your doctor or pharmacy to schedule flu shots for you and your family as soon as you’re able! It’s sure to be in demand this year due to COVID.
