Get Your Flu Shot!

It’s that time again, time to get your flu shot. It won’t be long until the the flu viruses will be circulating through the air, in offices, shopping places, restaurants, everywhere groups of people go. In the United Sates the flu season can begin as early as October and last as late as May. Every year the flu is different and can affect people differently. It’s hard to escape but you can take precaution by getting this year’s flu vaccination. This year the vaccination is available in both the flu shot or nasal spray and is available at Vistas Medical Center in Stone Mountain.

Who’s Most at Risk?

According to the Centers for Disease Control about 90% of deaths caused from flu conditions occur in people 65 or older. Therefore, it’s very important that the elderly take heed and get a flu vaccination. However, the rest of the population should get treated as well. #1 reason – you don’t want to be sick in bed with the flu! #2 reason, the more people who get vaccinated against the flu, the less flu can spread through the community. Everyone who is at least 6 months of age should get a flu vaccine this season.
