Top 3 reasons to get seasonal flu vaccine:

• Prevent seasonal influenza-related death
• Prevent severe illness
• Protect other people

In the U.S., influenza results in approximately 200,000 hospitalizations each year. Annually, over 36,000 people in the U.S. die from the flu, and most are age 65 or older. More people die from flu than from any other vaccine-preventable disease.

The Florida Department of Health Bureau of Immunization has materials available promoting the importance of flu vaccination at: http://www.immunizeflorida.org/flu/index.htm

Please protect yourself and your family and get your seasonal flu shot.
