August is National Immunization Awareness Month
August is National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM). At FutureCare, we understand the importance of being vaccinated for ourselves, our residents, our neighbors, and our community. We want to take this opportunity to remind our community of the importance of receiving your COVID-19 vaccine and COVID-19 boosters, as well as your seasonal flu shot.
- The COVID-19 vaccine is available to everyone who is 6 months of age and older
- The COVID-19 booster dose is available to everyone who is 5 years of age and older, after completing their COVID-19 vaccine primary series
- A second COVID-19 booster is available to adults ages 50 years and older and some people ages 12 years and older who are moderately or severely immunocompromised
- The annual influenza (flu) vaccine is recommended to everyone 6 months of age and older, including healthy adults
If you have any questions about the COVID-19 or flu vaccines or your eligibility, please speak to your healthcare provider.
