The Season Is Here: Where to Get Flu Shots in Campbell

Here's where to get an influenza vaccine, how to recognize symptoms and what to know about treatment if you get sick.

 

Flu season is coming early in parts of the United States: Cases of influenza in Silicon Valley are at the moderate stage right now, about the same as were last year, according to data on Google's Flu Trends. (Campbell-specific data is not available on Flu Trends.)
