Little girl with the fluStarting Dec. 20, we have restricted visiting guidelines to protect all patients, visitors and staff due to influenza.

Protect yourself and your loved ones from the flu

The best way to prevent the flu is to get your flu shot. Everyone over six months of age should receive the flu shot. It’s especially important if you live with people who are at high risk for developing flu-related complications. Annual flu shots are available at most Allina Health clinics!
