Influenza Immunization


Influenza, or "the flu" is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness. Serious outcomes of flu infection can result in hospitalization or death. Some people, such as older people, young children and people with certain health conditions are at high risk of serious flu complications.

Getting a flu vaccine every year is the best way to protect yourself and your family from flu and its potentially serious complications. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends everyone aged six months and older get vaccinated against the flu every year.

Free Flu Vaccines are available all across Tennessee on December 5th.
