“Oh, the flu isn't so bad...right?”
Wrong! The flu is a contagious disease which affects the lungs and can lead to serious illness, including pneumonia. Even healthy people can get sick enough to miss work or school for a significant amount of time.
“But what if the flu vaccine makes me sick?”
The flu vaccine cannot give you the flu. The most common side effects are a sore arm and maybe a low fever or achiness. If you do experience them at all, these side effects are mild and short lived.
“I hate shots.”
For most healthy, non-pregnant people aged 2 through 49 years old, the nasal-spray flu vaccine is a great choice for people who don't like shots.
Flu shots are available any time during the flu season – no appointments necessary. We can bill most insurance companies for the full price of your vaccination.
