Flu season is upon us! In the United States, influenza activity increases during the fall and winter seasons. The flu is a highly contagious disease; the virus spreads through the air when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or even talks.

Visit your local pharmacy (Rite Aid, Walgreens, and CVS) or visit the John Bell Health Center ( to get vaccinated!
