Stop the flu in its tracks!

Though flu seasons are unpredictable in a number of ways, colder weather across the country generally marks the beginning of the season. Each year, thousands of people in the United States are hospitalized or die from influenza (the flu). For this reason the Center for Disease Control recommends a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting yourself. For additional information refer to the CDC website at https://www.cdc.gov/flu/index.htm.

The flu is a contagious disease that is caused by a virus and is spread by coughing, sneezing and close contact. When untreated, it can lead to pneumonia and make existing medical conditions worse. The most common symptoms include fever, muscle aches, fatigue, headache, and runny or stuffy nose.
