Last year’s flu season affected an alarming number of people, and experts predict this year’s flu season could strike as early as October. That’s why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local physicians recommend families protect themselves now with the 2013 influenza vaccine.
Local AFC/Doctors Express and American Family Care facilities are stocking up on flu vaccines and will have them available throughout the flu season. No appointment is required and patients may walk in for a flu shot at their convenience.
Bartell Drugs has launched an extensive seasonal flu vaccination program offering convenient in-store vaccinations for individuals at 61 Bartell Drugs locations, and an off-site flu clinic program serving area businesses and retirement communities.
