Flu: Protect yourself and others.

Flu 2019

The World Health Organization (WHO) maintains that influenza vaccinations are effective and safe. 

Worldwide, these annual epidemics are estimated to result in about 5 million cases of severe illness and around 290 000 to 650 000 deaths.”

By choosing to get vaccinated, you are protecting not only yourself, but also your family, friends and colleagues as well as people who are vulnerable and at risk.
