FLU SHOT CLINICS
to find Goodhue County Locations
Influenza is a contagious respiratory infection that spreads around the United States every year, usually between October and May. Symptoms can vary by age, but can include: fever/chills, sore throat, cough, muscle aches, headache, fatigue, runny or stuffy nose. Flu can also lead to pneumonia and worsen other medical conditions. Infants, young children, older adults, pregnant women, and people with certain health conditions or weakened immune systems are at greater risk for complications, including death. Getting an annual flu vaccine is the best way to reduce the chances that you will get the flu and spread it to others. When more people get vaccinated against the flu, less flu can spread through the community. CDC recommends that everyone age 6 months and older get a flu shot by the end of October if possible.
