Flu season is just around the corner! The peak level of flu season generally occurs between late December and early March.
The flu is a very contagious disease that can cause mild to severe illness, and at times lead to death. Last year, there were about 30,000 confirmed cases of influenza and about 100 reported deaths from it.
Prevention of flu is KEY. An annual flu vaccine is the best way to protect against this potentially serious disease. The flu vaccine does not only reduce the course of the illness, but it protects the people around us. Infants, young children, elderly, and those with chronic health conditions are most vulnerable to serious health complications from the flu.
Golden Valley Health Centers strongly recommends the flu vaccine to all patients 6 months old and older.
