As flu season rolls around and the weather gets colder, clinics have begun to promote vaccinations this week.
Those looking for a clinic only need to point their browsers or mobile devices to findaflushot.com to find out address, hours and driving directions.
Although the World Health Organization has said the threat of an H1N1 pandemic is over, two other strains of the flu will likely spread this fall and winter. Luckily, those who inoculate themselves this year will be protected against all three.
In addition to making a comprehensive vaccine, supplies have been beefed up to prevent situations like last year’s shortage.
“Flu season is here and the CDC has issued a universal recommendation that everyone over six months of age get vaccinated,” said Steve Pellito, national director of wellness services for Maxim Health Systems. “Influenza is a serious and sometimes deadly illness that can be easily prevented, and we encourage everyone to protect themselves and their families this year by getting their flu shot.”
