National Diabetes Awareness Month
Diabetes is one of the leading causes of disability and death in the United States. One in 10 Americans have diabetes — that’s more than 30 million people. And another 84 million adults in the United States are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Keep the Flu from Getting You!
Flu season is around the corner!
Protect yourself and your family this season with an annual flu vaccine for everyone in your family who is 6 months of age and older. While the timing of flu season is unpredictable, seasonal flu activity can begin as early as October and last as late as May. CDC recommends that people get vaccinated by the end of October, if possible.
So, get your flu vaccine today! It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body that protects against influenza virus infection.
