As cooler temperatures arrive, so does something not happily welcomed: flu season. This year, the official kickoff for the new flu season is October 4th, and Broward Outpatient Urgent Care is dedicated to keeping you and your family healthy.

If more people dedicated themselves to getting annual flu shots, the less it will spread in our community. Vaccination is particularly important for people who are at high risk of serious complications from the flu, including pregnant women, children under the age of two, and adults over the age of 65.
If you have the flu, you can infect others one day before showing symptoms and up to seven days after becoming sick.
Besides vaccination, here are some tips to keeping your family healthy:
Again, the best defense against the flu is a vaccination.
