Flu season, also known as influenza season, starts in the fall and continues into spring every year. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends everyone over the age of 6 months to get a yearly flu shot to prevent influenza or experience less severe flu symptoms.
It's important to get a flu vaccination for protection while COVID-19 continues to spread. Less people with the flu will help reduce the burden on our local health care providers during the coronavirus pandemic and influenza season.
Many SouthCoast Health locations are offering flu shots. To schedule at your provider’s office, call the office to make an appointment for the flu vaccination. Patients can also save time by clicking on the link below to schedule a flu shot online at our main Savannah campus. (Walk-ins and new patients are accepted.)
