Flu season can be a bit of a challenge for everyone. Here at DOCS Urgent Care of Stamford we are on hand to administer flu shots to students. Flu vaccinations help provide the body with the antibodies needed to fight off the flu. Some of the more common strains of the virus that flu vaccinations can ward off include Influenza a (H1N1) virus, Influenza A (H3H2) virus, and Influenza B virus.
Anybody over the age of 6 should have a flu shot. Individuals suffering with chronic illnesses however, tend to be at a higher risk for complications from the vaccinations.
