Flu Information Center
Spectrum Health employees get the flu vaccination every year to protect our patients, their families and each other. Join us in the fight against flu by getting your vaccination and helping protect those around you.
Stop the spread of flu before it starts with an annual flu vaccination. The flu vaccine can reduce your risk of getting the flu, and prevents tens of thousands of hospitalizations each year.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone older than six months receive the flu shot. This is especially true if you spend time with high-risk groups such as children or the elderly.
