It is important to protect yourself during the flu season from contagious viral infections. When you choose to get a flu shot you are providing your body with the means of developing antibodies in a two-week timeline necessary to fight off infections linked to the virus. Influenza a (H1N1) virus, Influenza A (H3H2) virus, and Influenza B virus are common strains of the virus that seasonal vaccinations can combat.
Here at DOCS Urgent Care we highly recommend seasonal vaccinations for all our patients over the age of six, including those that are typically very healthy. However, it is important to understand that individuals who suffer with chronic illnesses are at a higher risk of complications from vaccinations.
