“The flu vaccine is one of the best ways we can protect ourselves and our families from the flu,” said LRGHealthcare Medical Director of Infection Control Dr. Abigail Dacuycuy. “The CDC recommends that everyone, six months and older should get a flu vaccine, and we support this recommendation. For some people, the flu is truly a health risk; for others, it is just an inconvenience, but everyone benefits from limiting its spread in our community. Widespread vaccination, including vaccination of children, is the best way to protect everyone in our community.”

Many doctor offices are offering the flu vaccine. LRGHealthcare urges you to see your primary care provider to receive your flu shot.
