Flu Clinics 2019

Flu season generally runs from October to April each year. The flu shot is recommended for everyone 6 months and older.

Note: It’s important for seniors to get the flu shot that is available in their location without delay – both the high-dose and standard flu vaccines are effective and recommended for people 65 years and older.
