Flu vaccines prevent millions of flu illnesses, tens of thousands of flu hospitalizations, and thousands of deaths every year. Flu vaccines have been used for more than 50 years to safely vaccinate hundreds of millions of Americans. This season, getting a flu vaccine is more important than ever. By getting vaccinated, you are helping to protect yourself AND the people around you from flu.
There is still time this season to benefit from getting an annual influenza vaccine. To speak with a public health nurse or to schedule a vaccine appointment, contact the East Hartford Health Department at 860-291-7324.
