Fall back time is fall vax time. Move your clocks back and your health forward.
On Sunday, November 7 at 2:00 am, we all will set our clocks back – or “fall back” an hour. Often thought of as gaining an additional hour, setting your clocks back is just one more great thing about fall.
Another hallmark of fall is cold, flu and pneumonia season. Cold weather months keep us inside more, which leads to higher spread of these types of illnesses, including COVID-19. So, when we say, “fall back time is fall vax time,” we mean that setting your clocks back each year is a great way to remind yourself to stay up to date on vaccines for yourself and your family, including vaccines that require booster shots like tetanus and diphtheria immunizations.
There’s no need to tie a string on your finger to remember. Every year, when you turn the clocks back, just remember to get your vaccines. Remember this, too: Whatever time of year you need a vaccine and/or booster, Kearny County Hospital’s team of trusted experts is here to take care of you.
