Here’s an easy way to protect your health this season: Get your flu shot.
Northfield Hospital + Clinics makes it convenient with dedicated Flu Vaccine Days at its four primary care clinics. Dates available through October in Farmington, Lakeville and Lonsdale – and through December in Northfield. Choose the time and location that’s most convenient for you: northfieldhospital.org/flu2019
The best time to get a flu shot is early before illness strikes, so you build up immunity. Cases of the flu start to show up once school starts and cold weather forces us back indoors.
When you get your flu vaccination early, you get the most protection: It can take up to two weeks for your body to build up immunity to the flu virus.
You can spread the flu to others even if you don’t feel sick. In fact, 20 to 30 percent of people carrying the flu virus have no symptoms. By getting vaccinated, you help protect yourself, your family, and those around you. (If you’re pregnant, your flu shot protects your baby, too.)
Shots typically take about 15 minutes. You can also get your flu shot during any other clinic appointment you already have planned.
