Get the Shot, Not the Flu
Getting a flu shot takes just a few minutes and it can save you a lot of headache- and coughing. And fever. And chills. And fatigue. And other miserable flu-related symptoms.
Exposure to the flu can happen anywhere- in a meeting at work, at the grocery store, or at a family gathering, but a flu shot is the single best way to prevent the flu according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In fact, the CDC recommends everyone over the age of 6 months receive a flu vaccine each year. It's a simple way to help protect you and those around you against the flu.
Each fall, Lockheed Martin offers its annual free flu shot program at more than 120 locations throughout the U.S. To learn more, review the Flu Shot FAQs.
