Call your healthcare provider or county health department to schedule your seasonal flu vaccination.

Seasonal flu vaccine is usually given from October through March each year. Each year the flu vaccine is updated to fight current flu strains.

Myth:

Receiving the flu shot will make you sick.

Truth: 

The flu shot is made with an inactivated vaccine (containing killed virus) and cannot infect anyone.

The nasal-spray flu vaccine is made with live, weakened flu viruses.

Don't get flu vaccine if you are allergic to eggs, had a severe reaction to a flu vaccine in the past, developed Guillian-Barré syndrome (GBS), are less than six months of age, or if you have a moderate or severe illness with fever.
