It's Not Too Late To Get Your FREE 2013-2014 Flu Shot!
The Allentown Health Bureau can help!

The best way to protect against influenza (flu) is to get a flu vaccine every flu season. Flu is a contagious respiratory disease that can lead to serious complications, hospitalization, or even death. Anyone can get the flu, and getting a flu vaccine is the single best way to protect yourself and your family. Even healthy people can get very sick from the flu and spread it to friends and loved ones.

The Allentown Health Bureau is scheduling flu vaccination appointments.
