Flu season usually begins in October and can last through May. The Centers for Disease Control recommends that everyone 6 months and older get a flu vaccine each year, especially people at high-risk for complications. Getting a flu vaccine is the first and most important step in protecting against this serious disease. Vaccinating yourself can help protect your family members, including seniors and young children.
“Bismarck Burleigh Public Health (BBPH) is prepared to kick-off prevention efforts to control the influenza virus,” said Vonnie Ereth, BBPH Wellness Supervisor. “We have both the injectable vaccine and nasal Flu Mist. Get vaccinated now before flu season starts. Protect yourself, Protect your family.”

Please remember to bring your insurance cards and ID forms to the walk-in flu vaccination clinics.
