The influenza virus affects millions of people each year and can be deadly, especially in high-risk groups. It is a respiratory virus that is contagious. Common symptoms include fever, muscle aches, chills, runny nose, congestion, sore throat, cough, headache, and fatigue. In some cases, it can also include diarrhea and vomiting. Because the flu effects your entire body, it can be one of the most miserable viruses a person can contract. It can make even the simplest daily tasks seem nearly impossible.
Because the influenza virus changes rapidly, flu specialists develop new vaccines each year to help fight against infection by influenza. Thus, getting a flu shot each year is highly recommended. It is especially important for high-risk individuals to receive their vaccinations as soon as possible. This would include children, the elderly, pregnant women, and others with a compromised immune system. However, this virus can infect even those with excellent health. Getting your flu shot can not only help protect your own health but also helps prevent the spread of this virus to those who might have a weakened immune system.
Let’s be proactive and give your body, and others around you, a fighting chance. Preventative care is one of the best ways to fight the flu and keep you and your loved ones healthy. Getting your flu shot sooner than later is one of the simplest ways to take that first step in preventative health care. Each of the Minit Medical clinics are conveniently located and proudly offer walk-in appointments for flu vaccinations.
The flu shot has been proven to help prevent and/or lessen the severity of the influenza virus. These vaccinations come with impressive safety records as well. The most common side effects are soreness, redness, and/or swelling from the shot at the injection site. In some cases, effects also included headache, fever, nausea, and muscle aches. However, these effects are most often mild and only last temporarily.
