CHCRR would like to remind you to get the Flu Shot and be a Flu Fighter.

Flu is a respiratory infection caused by a number of viruses. Most people with the flu get better on their own. But it can be serious. It can cause complications and sometimes even death. Getting the flu vaccine every year is the best way to lower your chance of getting the flu and spreading it to others.

The flu vaccine causes antibodies to develop in your body about two weeks after you get it. These antibodies provide protection against infection with the viruses that are in the vaccine. Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine every season. Ask your health care provider which one is right for you.
