Protect your family with a FREE flu shot—and Earn a $10 Reward!

 

Flu season lasts from September to April. Each year during flu season, up 200,000 people in the U.S. will go to the hospital because of the influenza virus. A serious illness, the flu can last up to two weeks. Symptoms like fatigue or a cough can last longer than 14 days.

A flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself from getting the virus. A flu vaccine is also the best way to keep from spreading the virus. If you are over the age of six months, I want you to get your flu shot. And because you may have heard some things about the flu shot, I want to make sure they are correct:

  • Does a flu shot give you the flu? No. It does not.
  • Will a flu shot hurt your unborn baby if you are pregnant? No. It will not.
  • Are you at a higher risk for getting the flu if you suffer from a chronic illness or if you are over the age of 65? Yes. You are.

So protect yourself and your family against the flu. Get your free flu vaccine and you’ll get $10 on your CentAccount® Healthy Rewards card. Keep your family healthy and earn your bonus reward by:
