Toby Tales: Let’s Get Vaxxed!

Toby+Tales%3A+Let%E2%80%99s+Get+Vaxxed%21

Toby just saved hundreds of people from getting sick! Don’t forget to get your influenza shot this year. Although it is best to get it in October, it is still not too late. 

It is possible to have the flu, as well as other respiratory illnesses and covid-19 at the same time. The vaccine is the most effective way to protect yourself and others from the flu, which an average of 36,000 Americans die from every year.

With covid-19 expected to surge in the coming weeks as Americans travel and gather for the holidays, this is not the year to risk becoming hospitalized for the flu or other preventable diseases. It is important to vaccinate yourself if you expect to be around others, especially children, older adults and the immunocompromised. Booster shots for the covid-19 vaccine are now becoming readily available to those who got their vaccines in the spring and others who qualify.

You can get the Influenza vaccine at CVS and Rite-Aid.

Let’s work together to help others and avert preventable illnesses and deaths!
