This year, it’s more important than ever to get vaccinated against the flu. The flu vaccine can keep you from getting and spreading the flu to others during the COVID-19 pandemic, and help keep our hospitals from being overwhelmed. We may not have a vaccine for COVID-19 yet, but we do have one for flu. www.knockoutflu.org

Make sure you’re keeping up with your child’s vaccinations

Vaccinating children – especially babies birth to 24 months, followed by 4-6-year-olds – on time is the best way to protect them from vaccine preventable diseases, like measles and pertussis. Talk with your doctor today and stay up to date on your child’s vaccinations!
