Bartow, FL - The Polk County Immunization Coalition recognizes National Influenza Vaccine Week December 4-10, 2011.
This is a nationwide observance that highlights the importance of continuing influenza vaccination throughout the holiday season and into the New Year.
Flu season in Florida peaks during February, so there is still plenty of time, they say, to be protected.
Anyone can get the flu. For those at greater risk of complications from this vaccine-preventable illness, getting the flu vaccine is especially important.
