How does the flu shot protect me during flu season?
The flu shot is an annual vaccination that allows patients to build immunity to the latest strain of influenza. Every year, the flu adapts and changes which means that any older flu vaccine does not protect patients against more modern strains.
Receiving a seasonal flu shot can prevent or lessen flu-like symptoms including:
- Runny Nose
- Muscle Soreness
- & More
Flu shots are typically offered through your insurance plan, or you can receive a low-cost flu shot at our walk-in clinic. We accept most major health insurances and provide affordable flu shots for our self-pay patients.
