Fall is almost here and winter will soon follow. Protect yourself against the season's greatest enemy — the flu — by taking proper precautions, as well as vaccinating yourself and your family early.
"Flu season is from October through March," says Patrice Inglett, RN, an infection control practitioner at Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center.
"The best advice to avoid illness all year round is to follow the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)," she adds. "According to the CDC, the single best way to protect against the flu is to get vaccinated each year."
Sharp Chula Vista will hold its free community flu vaccination clinic on Saturday, Oct. 13, from 9 am to noon (or as supplies last). Still on the fence about a flu shot? Here are some facts to consider:
