The “Flu” is a contagious disease that comes around every year from October to May. The symptoms come on sud- denly and hits you like a ton of bricks. People who work or are in contact with many other people are at greater risk for contacting this disease. It is especially important for these people to get the flu shot. The flu shot can not prevent all cases of the flu, due to the fact that each year it is made from vi- ruses that are most likely to cause disease that year. It takes up to two weeks for the body to de- velop immunity, so ask your doctor if they have the flu shot, or come to us. We can im- munize children and adults from age 8 and up.
