Protect Yourself From the Flu
According to the Minnesota Department of Health, "Everyone 6 months of age and older should get the flu vaccine every year." A flu shot (or nasal spray) helps protect you from getting the influenza virus and passing it on to people who are at risk of getting very sick: babies, pregnant women, elderly people and those with chronic diseases.
To schedule an appointment to receive your flu vaccine, please us at 507-794-3691.
