It’s Time to Get Your Flu Vaccine!

The best defense against the flu is getting your family vaccinated. Viruses do change, as seen in years past, so it’s important to get a flu vaccine annually. This year’s flu vaccine has four strains (quadrivalent) of flu virus, two A (H1N1 and H3N2) and two B (Phuket/Yamagata and Brisbane/Victoria lineage).
