Influenza vaccination 2015-07-16T10:12:51-05:00


According to the 
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), vaccination is needed to prevent viral infections in high risk groups (those who are elderly, immune compromised, or who have chronic diseases such as diabetes), since viruses do not respond to antibiotics.


Influenza viruses in the US are different each year, so flu vaccination is needed annually. Flu vaccinations are available in the fall and winter months, but the supply is not always abundant, so it may be helpful to plan ahead and schedule a flu vaccination appointment with your physician.
