People ages 65 and older are at a greater risk of serious complications from the flu compared to other age groups.

An estimated 90 percent of seasonal flu-related deaths and between 50 and 60 percent of seasonal flu-related hospitalizations in the United States occur in people 65 years and older (Kostova/Reed models). This is because human immune defenses become weaker with age, making influenza a very serious disease for seniors.

Flu season typically runs from October 1 through March 31, so it is important for all seniors to sign up and receive their flu vaccination. For any questions related to the vaccine, please call either of our Winyah Pharmacy locations:
