Get a flu shot BEFORE the virus begins to spread throughout the City and the country. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body that protect against the flu. It is recommended that people get a shot before the end of October, but receiving it later can still be beneficial. The CDC has a list of groups recommended for vaccination for 2020-21; as well as info for high risk individuals.

  • A/Guangdong-Maonan/SWL1536/2019 (H1N1)pdm09-like virus (updated)
  • A/Hong Kong/2671/2019 (H3N2)-like virus (updated)
  • B/Washington/02/2019 (B/Victoria lineage)-like virus (updated)

Don’t miss out – first come, first serve. For more information about this flu season, visit the CDC website. If you have any questions about the flu shot clinic, please contact Michelle Gifford at 972-941-7227.
