Do You. Not the Flu.

When it gets to that time of the year again in South Dakota, citizens often push off getting the flu shot until it’s too late to save your plans. The flu can take you out of commission for as many as two weeks with miserable symptoms like these: fever, chills, cough, sore throat, congestion, body aches and fatigue. Once you’re housebound and overcome by symptoms, there’s no turning back. The flu is imminent, but there’s a way you can prevent all of this. Take just a few minutes to get your flu shot from the pharmacy, your doctor or a pop-up vaccine shop. Get the shot, and do you — not the flu.
