Influenza is a potentially serious condition, particularly for infants, young children, seniors, and people with health conditions such as Diabetes, Asthma, and Heart Disease. The vaccine to prevent Influenza is effective, widely available, and inexpensive. Flu vaccine is now recommended for everyone over the age of 6 months (unless there is a true egg allergy, a history of previous poor reaction or Guillian Barre Syndrome). Even older children, teens, and healthy adults will experience fever, muscle aches, headache, and malaise.
By getting your entire family vaccinated, you are not only protecting loved ones, but also the entire school community by helping to reduce illness and the number of absentee students who miss critical lessons while not in school. Thank you and stay healthy.
