Have You Gotten Your Flu Shot?

Although the weather may still be nice outside, we all know that flu season is right around the corner. That means it’s time to protect yourself with a flu shot. The flu is much more dangerous than most people realize. 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 vaccinated.

Our 2017 flu clinic schedule is listed below. All Reliant Medical Group patients are eligible to attend our flu vaccination clinics. The schedule has been reduced somewhat this year since we are encouraging patients to make appointments with their medical provider to receive their flu shot. Note that the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advisory committee recommended that FluMist, the nasal spray influenza vaccine, not be used during the 2017-18 flu season due to ineffectiveness.

More detailed information on the flu and flu vaccinations is available at reliantmedicalgroup.org/flu.

    By what date are you recommending people should get their flu shots?

      Hi Mary. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body and provide protection against influenza virus infection. That’s why it’s better to get vaccinated early in the fall, before the flu season really gets under way. Hope that helps!
