Flu Shots Available

Flu shots are in two months earlier than they have been in previous years. Experts say it's not too early to get your shot.
August 30, 2013 - You may not be thinking about the flu season yet because it's only August, but according to the CDC, vaccines are already available.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, anyone older than six months should get a yearly flu vaccine.

Experts say it's hard to pinpoint the start of flu season and how significant the flu cases will be each year, however, flu cases usually pop up sometime around October and peak in January and February.

Vaccines for the flu shouldn't run out as manufacturers have produced between 135 and 139 million doses.

Lifeworks Erie is doing its part to keep the community healthy by offering flu shot clinics.

The Lifeworks Erie kick off event for flu shots is Wednesday September 4th from 7:30am to 2pm at First Alliance Church, 2939 Zimmerly Road.
