Holiday reminder to get immunized
December is a time for celebrations and gathering with loved ones. If your holiday plans include visiting people who are most at risk of contracting the flu or COVID-19, this is your reminder to get vaccinated. (High-risk individuals for the flu and COVID-19 include: adults aged 50 years and older, children under five, those who are pregnant and people with chronic health conditions, weakened immune systems or additional underlying conditions).
Did you know it takes about two weeks for the full protective effects of vaccinations to kick in? That means you need to get them before December begins! It’s safe to receive both flu and COVID-19 vaccinations at the same time, helping prevent the spread of these respiratory illnesses this winter.
