Flu Season has arrived, and thankfully…so has our flu vaccine!
We’ve already seen cases of Influenza B, and that means Influenza A isn’t far behind.
At the very least Influenza (aka “the flu”) can lead to days missed from school or work. At its worst, flu can lead to pneumonia, and make existing medical conditions worse. It can cause diarrhea and seizures in children. In fact, each year thousands of people in the United States die from flu, and many more are hospitalized.
Flu vaccine is the best protection we have from the flu and its complications, and it can also help prevent the spread of flu from person to person.
Flu vaccine is available at scheduled Well Visits and during Flu Clinic hours. And because we know that healthy parents are able to care for their children, we’re also offering flu vaccinations for our parents for a $35 fee.
FLU CLINIC HOURS
Tuesdays afternoons 4:00-5:30 pm
Thursday mornings 8:00-9:30 am.
Dr. Weiss reminds us that it takes two weeks for protection to develop after the vaccination. So please call our office today at 941-552-8341 to make an appointment.
Here’s to a safe and healthy flu season!
