Importance of Flu Vaccination:
The flu vaccine remains a critical measure to prevent the spread of influenza, particularly during times of increased susceptibility in the colder months. By getting vaccinated, individuals not only protect themselves but also contribute to community immunity, shielding vulnerable populations from severe illness.
The Fort Riley Department of Public Health is committed to promoting a healthy community by providing essential healthcare services and initiatives, contributing to the overall well-being of service members, civilians, and their families.
