GET YOUR FLU SHOT
Everyone six months of age and older should get a flu shot each year. Plan to get the flu shot as soon as you can.
The earlier the better. Your body needs about two weeks to build immunity after getting the flu shot. Health care providers have protocols in place for safe immunizations.
Typically, you can plan to get your flu shot in early November.
If you are a Bridges CHC client and need a flu shot,
call 905-871-7621, 289-479-5017 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
