The flu spreads easily, and there are lots of ways to catch it.

The flu is especially hard on older adults and small children, so keep your family protected.

Because getting the flu is easy, but getting the shot is even easier.

DSHS encourages you to protect yourself and your family by getting the flu shot as soon as possible. We urge everyone six months old and older to get vaccinated every flu season.
