  • Flu Vaccine

    Flu season is upon us! The “seasonal flu season” in the United States can begin as early as October and last as late as May. During this time, flu viruses are circulating in the population. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends being vaccinated against the influenza virus. An annual flu vaccine is the best way to reduce the chances that you will get seasonal flu and spread it to others. When more people get vaccinated against the flu, less flu can spread through the community which helps us to all be healthier. The Health and Wellness Center, Athletics, and Forester Fitness Team will be sponsoring flu clinics in September and October.
