Every year, the flu season brings with it not just more respiratory illness that includes fevers, coughs, and sore throats but also a number of hospitalizations and flu-related deaths. Because Jefferson Healthcare and other healthcare systems across the state are struggling with continued staffing shortages, there is concern that a wave of influenza infections will overwhelm strained local hospitals and clinics.
Protecting all members of our community through vaccination is an important Jefferson Healthcare initiative. By vaccinating families on time, we build a community of immunity around vulnerable populations like babies and seniors.
