Flu Vaccination

Influen­za (flu) is a high­ly con­ta­gious, acute viral infec­tion which infects the upper air­ways and lungs. It is eas­i­ly spread from per­son to per­son and vac­ci­na­tion is the best way to reduce the risk of get­ting the flu. The vac­cine pro­tects you against influen­za by build­ing immu­ni­ty to the virus and pre­vent­ing trans­mis­sion of the virus to oth­er people. 

Vac­ci­na­tion is rec­om­mend­ed for any­one aged 6 months and old­er who wish­es to pro­tect them­selves from influen­za and its complications.
