What to know about the Flu Vaccine

It is that time of year again when viruses and illnesses seem to spread throughout our work places and schools.  We want to know if you are taking precautions to protect yourself from becoming ill.  The flu is one of the more common viruses and one of the most dangerous viruses.  The CDC recommends that everyone receive their influenza vaccination, especially individuals 50 years of age and older, individuals with chronic health conditions, young children, and women who are pregnant or plan to be pregnant during influenza season.   Listed below are a few benefits when receiving your annual influenza vaccination:

 

  • Flu vaccination can keep you from getting sick from flu. Protecting yourself from flu also protects the people around you who are more vulnerable to serious flu illness.

  • Flu vaccination can help protect people who are at greater risk of getting seriously ill from flu, like older adults, people with chronic health conditions and young children (especially infants younger than 6 months old who are too young to get vaccinated).

  • Flu vaccination also may make your illness milder if you do get sick.

  • Flu vaccination can reduce the risk of more serious flu outcomes, like hospitalizations and deaths.

     

    We understand getting to the doctor to get vaccinated can be a hassle, that’s why our pharmacists are trained to provide the influenza vaccination to individuals 12 years of age and older.  At MediCenter Pharmacy we make it convenient to receive your yearly influenza vaccination, no appointment is required and we will bill your insurance.  For additional information on the influenza vaccination, visit our “General Services” page on the website or give us a call.
