Keep the flu from getting to you! Get a flu shot!
Small steps and good choices about your health can make a big difference. The flu can cause fever, chills, and body aches resulting in missed days of work and school. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that the flu causes over 200,000 hospitalizations every year. The flu can be unpredictably serious and even deadly. Doctors recommend that all individuals 6 months and older get the flu vaccine each and every year. The flu vaccine wears off over the course of a year so it is important to get one during every flu season. Don’t delay. Get your flu shot today!
Flu shots are usually available from your health care provider, drug stores and grocery stores. Flu vaccine is also available at the Health and Human Services Immunization Clinic located at 40 Coxe Avenue in downtown Asheville, across the street from the post office and bus station. Parking is free. Anyone 6 months and older may receive a flu vaccine at this location, without an appointment, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8am – 5 pm.
