CDC predicts that national influenza activity will remain high for at least several more weeks. You and your family members can go to any Pinal County health clinic and receive the vaccine.

The best way to avoid spreading the disease is to wash hands frequently, stay home from work if you are sick, and get vaccinated. If you have symptoms, see your primary care provider, get tested for influenza, and take antivirals if prescribed. Antivirals are more effective when taken early, please visit your PCP as soon as symptoms develop.
