Protect Yourself this Flu Season

Protect Yourself This Flu Season

The CDC recommends that you get a flu vaccine by the end of October. Flu season usually starts in October and can sometimes last until May. A flu shot is recommended for all people aged 6 months and older. Getting an annual flu vaccine is the best way to prevent the flu.

Did you know the flu virus changes and adapts every year?  Before each flu season, the CDC determines what strain of influenza is most likely to appear that year. New vaccines are created and released to fight the strain of the flu.

Some people experience minor side effects from the vaccine such as soreness, redness, tenderness, and swelling. A low-grade fever, headache, and muscle aches may occur as well. For more information about the flu vaccine please visit the CDC’s website here.

At Ray’s Pharmacy we offer the flu vaccine each year. We can run the cost through most insurances and often the vaccine is free. Protect yourself and your family this flu season. Get your flu shot today at any Ray’s Pharmacy location!
