2022 Flu Vaccination Information
Influenza, “the flu”, can be anywhere and is easily spread through talking, coughing and sneezing. Up to one in five people get influenza every year. Some people can get very sick with the flu while others may not know they have it as they do not feel unwell. But they can still pass it on to other people and make them very sick.
Getting your flu vaccine is one of the best things you can do to stay well and protect yourself, your family and friends during this flu season.
