Don't get cought without your flu vaccine for this year!
Prebook flu vaccine to keep your office healthy during the influenza season. Outbreaks of healthcare-associated influenza affect both patients and personnel in long-term care facilities and hospitals. Flu vaccination of both health care personnel and patients combined with basic infection control practices can help prevent outbreaks. Flu vaccines come in two forms: the traditional flu vaccine given in flu shots and the nasal spray flu vaccine that is administered up the patients nose. The traditional flu vaccine shot can range from 6 months Fluzone, Pediatric (6-35 months) or 6 months + versions to the 3 year+ GSK Flulaval. The nasal spray flu vaccine version works with people 2-49 years of age. Many professionals will encourage you to get your flu shot early this year to help avoid the influenza breakouts later this season.
Why prebook your flu vaccine from us?
The 2018-2019 flu vaccine will begin shipping at the beginning of August thru the end of the year. Everyone 6 months of age and older should get vaccinated against the flu as soon as the 2018-2019 season vaccine is available. People at high risk of serious flu complications include young children, pregnant women, people with chronic health conditions like asthma, diabetes or heart and lung disease and people 65 years and older. Vaccination of high risk persons is especially important to decrease their risk of severe flu illness. Vaccination also is important for health care workers, and other people who live with or care for high risk people to keep from spreading flu to high risk people. Children younger than 6 months are at high risk of serious flu illness, but are too young to be vaccinated. People who care for them should be vaccinated instead. CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses.
