Flu Season

Protect yourself during flu season. Although we are all already taking infection prevention measures due to COVID-19, such as frequent hand washing, covering our coughs and sneezes, or wearing a mask and social distancing, it is still very important to get a flu vaccine. Keep in mind that it takes two weeks to build protection after a flu vaccine, so don't delay getting yours. Please contact us today to schedule your protective vaccine.
