With the fall season comes back-to-school, beautiful foliage, apple picking, cooler days, and respiratory illnesses. While some people may experience mild symptoms from the viruses, others, including infants, seniors, and people at high risk, can become very sick and require emergency and hospitalized care.
The good news is this fall, new vaccines for Flu, COVID, and RSV are available to help prevent some of the most common respiratory illnesses more than ever. Use this handy chart to find out who, when, and where you and your loved ones should receive the vaccines. In addition to staying up-to-date on vaccines, use proper hygiene and remember to always wash your hands with soap and water! Visit www.cdc.gov for the latest information about vaccines and contact your physician with any questions. We hope you have a happy, healthy fall.
