This flu season, don’t wait to vaccinate
Flu clinics are open at ARC primary care locations for new and established patients. Additionally, flu shots are available at ob/gyn appointments. Because protection wanes toward the end of the flu season, September and October are the best times to get vaccinated.
Book online at ARCflushot.com or ask for it at your next scheduled visit.
