Flu season is here; time to get vaccinated

FLU SHOT Oregon — Flu season is here, and local health care facilities are already reporting confirmed cases of the virus.

Those 6 months of age and older are encouraged to get vaccinated against the flu. The vaccine can be administered by a shot or nasal spray, and will start to protect you against the flu almost as soon as you get it.

Valley Immediate Care just reported their first case of flu over the weekend. The CDC reports that 98-million americans have already gotten their flu vaccine this season.
