In the U.S, flu season occurs beginning in the fall and lasts through the following spring or longer. The CDC recommends that people 6 months and older get vaccinated against the flu. This year the vaccine is being given at Public Health Centers and other locations throughout the County during the fall and winter months, and later. For 2020-2021 flu clinic information, please visit our website at www.sdiz.org in early fall. 

You need to get vaccinated against the flu every year because vaccine protection lessens over time. So, even if you got vaccine last flu season, you still need it this flu season. And it is not possible to predict how mild or severe this flu season will be.

Besides getting flu vaccine, here are a few simple steps you can take every day to stop the spread of the flu and other germs:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water,
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your arm,
  • Stay away from sick people whenever possible, and 
  • Stay home when you are sick.
