Providing Flu Shots
Get Ready for Flu Season at St. Joseph Health Medical Group
You can help prevent the flu by getting your flu vaccination each fall.
We encourage all of our patients to get the vaccination this season. Believe
it or not, the flu can be a very serious illness. The flu has been responsible
for thousands of hospitalizations and even deaths each year.
In addition, there isn't just one type of flu. There are actually several
strains of flu viruses and they continuously mutate. Unfortunately, a
virus cannot be cured, but having a vaccination can safeguard you from
developing the flu in the first place. Ready to get vaccinated? Come and
visit us today!
Don't forego your flu vaccination
There are many individuals who support the idea that getting the flu vaccine
is not very effective, and can even cause a person to come down with similar
symptoms. We want to emphasize that although each person's experience
will be different, it is much more beneficial to protect yourself against
the flu. Having the flu can make you miserable and even take you away
from your routine for a few days.
These are just some of the symptoms of the flu:
- Fever with a temperature over 100 degrees
- Watery eyes
- Sore throat
- Runny or stuffy nose
- Headaches or muscle and joint aches
- Nausea or diarrhea
If you do get sick with the flu, you need get as much rest as possible
and stay hydrated to maximize recovery. You should avoid interacting with
others, as this can also trigger the flu for the other person. You can
also visit our facility to obtain prescription medication for stubborn
symptoms, or if your condition has not improved after a couple of weeks.
Who should get the flu vaccine?
This year, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has recommended that all
persons age six months and over receive a flu vaccine. The shot is approved
for pregnant women to receive as well. It is especially important for
those with chronic medical conditions to have a flu shot. You should consult
with your physician before obtaining the shot to see if you are allergic
to any of the components of the vaccine.
