Flu Vaccine Update

If you've been thinking of getting a flu shot, it's not too late to be immunized.  It's recommended that people receive flu vaccine as early in the season as possible, but before flu comes to your community; therefore, vaccination even as late as February can still protect you.  Now that vaccine production delays for the 2001-2002 vaccine have been resolved, adequate supplies of vaccine are available.

To learn more, visit:
