Getting the flu can be more than just uncomfortable and inconvenient, it can also be dangerous. Many people, especially the elderly, are hospitalized for serious flu complications each year. That’s why at Reliant Medical Group we encourage all patients six months and older to make sure they get a flu vaccination each year.
Our 2016 flu clinic schedule is listed below. All Reliant Medical Group patients can attend our flu vaccination clinics. The schedule has been reduced somewhat this year as we are encouraging patients to make appointments with their medical provider to receive their flu shot.
Please be aware that the FluMist nasal spray vaccine is not being offered this flu season. This is because the nasal flu mist vaccine was deemed ineffective during the previous flu season by an advisory panel of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. For this reason, all flu vaccinations will have to be given by injection this year. More detailed information on the flu and flu vaccinations is available here.
