Flu Shots! Protect yourself and protect your family
We are now offering flu shots to ALL of our patients. The best way to prevent the flu is by getting a flu vaccine each year.
The CDC (Center for Disease Control) recommends that everyone aged 6 months and older get vaccinated annually for seasonal influenza (flu). This is especially important among high-risk groups, including pregnant women, older people, young children and newborns, and people with chronic illnesses.
The influenza vaccine is safe for pregnant women and their unborn children as well as postpartum and breastfeeding women and can be given during any trimester. Pregnant women are at increased risk for serious illness and death from the flu. Immunizing pregnant and postpartum women against seasonal influenza can protect the mother and may help her baby by preventing the spread of the flu from mother to child following delivery.
If you have any questions ask your provider about importance of staying vaccinated and schedule your flu shot today!
