Flu season is almost here, and MedPost Urgent Care is offering a low-cost vaccination opportunity – $15 flu shots.
The vaccines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) this year contain the most common types of the flu virus and are currently recommended for all persons age 6 months or older. We strongly recommend vaccination for people who have a chronic illness, are currently or recently pregnant, young children and healthcare workers.
Remember, even if you are well, you may be in contact with others who are at greater risk than you. The flu vaccine is also slightly different each year; this means that last year's vaccine will not protect us this year. People between 2-49 years of age have the choice between the flu shot or a nasal spray vaccine. Also, if you are over the age of 65, you may be able to receive a 'High-Dose' vaccine. You should talk to your health care provider about these options.
Vaccination early in the flu season is again recommended by the Centers for Disease Control. The protection you get from vaccination lasts throughout the flu season, but it can take up to two weeks for your body to build immunity. The sooner you are vaccinated the better your defense will be when the flu arrives.
It takes teamwork to prevent the spread of the flu virus. Please consider receiving your flu vaccine this year. If you have already received your flu vaccine, please disregard this notice. For more information, we recommend: flu.gov. Visit medpost.com for directions and hours.
