Call us today to schedule your flu shot!
If you are 65 years or older, getting a flu shot is the best way to protect yourself and others.
As your SaludVIP Doctor, I urge you to take the following actions to protect yourself and others from the FLU!
1. GET YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY VACCINATED!
A yearly FLU vaccine is the first and most important step in protecting against FLU viruses.
Everyone 6 months or older should get an annual FLU vaccine. Protect Yourself. Protect your Family. Get Vaccinated!
2. STOP THE SPREAD:
Take everyday preventive actions to help stop the spread of FLU viruses. Avoid close contact with sick people, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, and cover your coughs and sneezes. Also, wash your hands often with soap and water.
4. Flu cases are expected to start running early in October and could last late into May.
This makes September and early October the ideal time to get your flu shot.
3. ASK YOUR SaludVIP Doctor ABOUT FLU ANTIVIRALS:
Take antiviral drugs if your doctor prescribes them. Antiviral drugs can be used to treat FLU illness and can make illness milder and shorten the time you are sick.
5. Please do not wait for flu cases to start to peak.
COVID-19 will still be circulating during flu season, which makes getting a flu vaccine more important than ever. Prevention is key!
