Cold & Flu Prevention

The best way to reduce risk of getting the flu is to get the influenza vaccine each year, BEFORE the flu season begins!
The vaccines work by exposing your immune system to the flu virus.
Your body will build up antibodies to the virus to protect you from getting the flu.
The flu shot contains dead viruses. You cannot get the flu from the flu shot.
