"Do I Need a Flu Shot?"

 

Flu season is upon us and Your Care is committed to helping you stay healthy. We would rather see you for a preventative shot than with a "Stomp Out the Flu." A full-blown case of the flu. Influenza, commonly known as the flu, is a respiratory infection that can cause serious complications (even death). Read more for quick flu facts that will help you decide how you're going to The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends annual flu shots for everyone age 6 months and older. For everyone, getting vaccinated each year provides the best protection against influenza throughout the flu season.

Vaccination is especially important for those at high risk of the flu, including:

  • Pregnant women

  • Older adults

  • Young Children

  • People with chronic medical conditions including but not limited to:

  • Asthma

  • Obesity

  • Cancer or cancer treatment

  • COPD

  • Cystic Fibrosis

  • Diabetes

  • HIV/Aids

  • Kidney or liver disease

     

  • Check with your doctor BEFORE getting the flu shot if:

    • You've had a severe reaction to previous flu vaccination.

     

  • DO I NEED TO GET VACCINATED EVERY YEAR?

    Flu viruses evolve quickly, last year's vaccine may not protect you from this year's viruses.

     

  • WHEN IS THE FLU VACCINE AVAILABLE?
