Each year in the U.S., 25 to 50 million infections are reported, more than 200,000 people are hospitalized and 23,600 die due to seasonal flu.

The best way to prevent the flu is to get the flu vaccine each year. The vaccine takes one to two weeks to start working and is 70 to 90 percent effective in preventing the seasonal flu, according to the Arkansas Department of Health.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that anyone 6 months of age and older receive the flu vaccine. If your child is between the ages of 6 months and 11 years old, making them ineligible for the Baptist Health Community Outreach flu shot clinics, there are other options available. Speak with your child’s pediatrician about getting vaccinated. 

Vaccination against the flu is particularly important for people who are at high risk for serious complications, including: 

  • Young children 
  • Pregnant women 
  • People with chronic health conditions such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease and lung disease 
  • People 65 years and older 
  • People who live with or care for anyone at high risk for serious flu complications

The vaccine is additionally available at Baptist Health’s primary care and urgent care clinics across the state (insurance filed or nominal fee may apply). To learn more, visit or call 1-888-BAPTIST.
