Give the Gift of Good Health This Holiday Season - Remind Friends and Family to Get a Flu Shot
Date:10/29/2008

COLUMBIA, Md., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The holiday season is here, which for most Americans means time spent in stores packed with shoppers and in homes bustling with family and friends. All of this time spent indoors in crowded spaces translates to an increased risk for contracting viruses, particularly influenza. Maxim Health Systems is reminding people to get their annual flu vaccine if they have not already done so, not only to protect themselves against this sometimes deadly virus, but also to help protect their family and friends.

"Everyone is encouraged to get vaccinated," according to Jeanne Santoli, Deputy Director of Immunization Services at the CDC. "Especially those considered to be at higher risk. The best way to protect yourself and your loved ones is by getting your annual flu vaccine."

This year Maxim is providing flu shot clinics at 25,000 convenient retail locations nationwide, such as pharmacies, supermarkets, and other public venues. Locating a nearby clinic is as simple as typing in your zip code on http://www.FindaFluShot.com. This will provide the address, date, and times for flu shots at local clinics. The Web site also provides the latest news on influenza and links to other resources. For those who prefer to find a convenient location over the phone, Maxim provides a toll free number at 877- 962-9358.

As many as 60 million Americans fall victim to influenza and flu-related complications such as pneumonia each year, resulting in 20,000 hospitalizations and 36,000 deaths per year.(i) The CDC strongly encourages high-risk individuals to get vaccinated. This includes:

-- Anyone who wants to reduce the risk of contracting the virus

-- People at high risk of having serious complications from influenza,

including:

-- All children from six months through 18 years of age

-- Pregnant women

-- People 50 years of
