Don’t Miss Your Shot to Fight the Flu!

By Shelby Bell

The flu effects millions of adults and children each year. Some people can get very sick and go to the hospital, and some may die. Thankfully, staying proactive and receiving a yearly flu shot is the best way to stay healthy and protect those around you. With both the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 and influenza viruses currently circulating, getting your flu vaccine this year is more important than ever. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone older than 6 months of age receive a yearly flu shot. Visit your Primary Care Physician, your local pharmacy, or the Allegheny County Health Department Immunization Clinic in downtown Pittsburgh to get your flu shot today.

For answers to frequently asked questions about the flu and the vaccine, visit AlleghenyCounty.us/Influenza or contact us at (412) 578-8062.
