Flu vaccinations are strongly recommended this season, particularly with the continued COVID-19 pandemic. The body needs at least two weeks to develop an immune response. Flu season ranges from December to February.

Continuing to wear a mask, washing hands frequently, sneezing into your arm, and staying home when you are sick are important to halt the spread of both COVID-19 and influenza.

The clinic also may be participating in community events or extend hours specifically for flu shot clinics. Those dates and times, along with other flu resources, can be found at
