Influenza is an unpredictable and serious disease that can devastate communities and cost billions of dollars in lost productivity and health care expenses.

The best way to be protected from the flu is to get vaccinated. When enough individuals in a community are vaccinated, protection against flu is provided for those who are most vulnerable; the elderly, pregnant women, infants, and people who have chronic health conditions or are immunocompromised.

The 2018-2019 influenza season was the longest season in a decade. During the 2018-2019 season, approximately 5.5 million people were sick with influenza, 16.5 million people went to a health care provider for their illness, 490,600 were hospitalized, and 34,200 died from influenza. There were 136 pediatric deaths due to influenza.

While seasonal influenza outbreaks can happen as early as October, most of the time influenza activity peaks in January or later. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body, thus it is best to be vaccinated before influenza begins spreading in our community. Immunity from the vaccine lasts around 6 months, so the optimal time to be vaccinated is in October, August is TOO EARLY!
