Flu season can be a bit of a challenge to everyone. Here at DOCS we administer flu vaccinations to help students combat the many contagious viral infections that can be spread during the flu season. Flu shots provide your body antibodies needed to fight off infections linked to the virus. Influenza a (H1N1) virus, Influenza A (H3H2) virus, and Influenza B virus are some of the more common strains of the virus that flu shots can combat.
Our team of specialists recommend all of our patients over the age of six have seasonal vaccinations. However, we want to alert patients that those suffering with chronic illnesses may be at a higher risk for complications from flu shots.
It is highly recommended when traveling abroad, that individuals have disease preventing travel immunization shots. Our dedicated team of physicians here at DOCS Urgent Care of Fairfield are on hand to administer these vaccinations in their efforts to help your travels to be free of the effects of harmful bacteria and viruses.
