It’s that time of year! We are coming into flu season once again. We are expecting flu shots to be delivered in late September. Although flu shots be may available at some pharmacies, we highly recommend that you wait to receive the flu shot here for a couple of reasons.
First, according to the Centers for Disease Control, flu activity tends to peak between December and February, although activity can last as late as May. Due to the extended length of the flu season, getting the shot in late September/early October will help you ride out the season.
Second, we are better able to monitor our patients should there be any reactions to the shot.
Flu shots can be given during your scheduled office visit. We will also offer flu-shots on a limited walk-in basis. Watch this site and your portal messages for further details regarding flu shot protocols.
