Walk-in flu shot clinics open October 8 in the Northwest
Did you know that there are different strains (or versions) of the flu virus each year? That’s why it’s a good idea to get your flu shot annually — to protect yourself from the strains most likely to hit with each flu season.
When to get your flu shot
You can protect yourself and those around you by getting your flu shot as soon as it’s available. Getting vaccinated before December will give your body time to build up resistance to the flu before it becomes common. Take advantage of our walk-in flu shot clinics from October 8 through 21, 2016.
