The best way to protect against flu and its potentially serious complications is with a flu shot. The CDC recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older get a seasonal flu vaccine each year by the end of October.
Flu vaccination is especially important for people 65 years and older because they are at high risk of developing serious complications from flu. Manet is hosting a flu clinic for Taunton seniors on:
