The Importance of Flu Vaccination
The flu vaccination protects the vaccinated individual and his/her family and friends from the flu. The flu virus can have extremely serious health effects, leading to hospitalizations and even death.
Do not take the chance! Turn in the completed Consent Form and have your child vaccinated under the Control Flu program to be sure your child, and family, are protected.
The flu vaccination is the most effective method of preventing the flu! It minimizes the risk of flu infection, while reducing the threat of associated complications such as severe illness and hospitalization.
Vaccination helps an individual’s body develop antibodies. These antibodies provide protection against infection. Flu vaccinations also prevent the spread of illness, school absences, and missed days at work.
