Flu Vaccine Clinic

The change of seasons often brings an influenza (flu) outbreak. Getting the flu vaccine is more important than ever to protect yourself and the people around you and to help reduce the strain on the healthcare system responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Although influenza activity generally peaks around January, it takes the body about two weeks after vaccination to develop antibodies that will protect against influenza virus infection. For that reason, it's important to get vaccinated before the seasonal outbreak, especially if you fall into the high-risk category.
