Orion Flu Shots

Why do you  need a flu shot? Because flu viruses evolve so quickly, last year's vaccine may not protect you from this year's viruses. After vaccination, your immune system produces antibodies that will protect you from the vaccine viruses. In general, though, antibody levels start to decline over time- another reason to get a flu shot every year. Pick up your Walgreens flu shot registration from the front desk when you register. Membership and pre-registration required.
