According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “Influenza is a potentially serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Every flu season is different, and influenza infection can affect people differently, but millions of people get the flu every year, hundreds of thousands of people are hospitalized and thousands or tens of thousands of people die from flu-related causes every year. An annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to help protect against flu. Vaccination has been shown to have many benefits including reducing the risk of flu illnesses, hospitalizations and even the risk of flu-related death in children.”

The Cullman Regional Family Care Clinic is located on the Cullman Regional campus, in Professional Office Building 1, on the 4th floor and in Suite 450.

Walk-ins are accepted for the flu shot clinic on the specified dates and times only. For more information, contact the Cullman Regional Family Care Clinic at 256-735-5075 or visit www.CullmanRegionalFamilyCare.com.
