What items make up your fall favorites list? Pumpkin spice lattes, fall leaves, crisp air, hearty soups, flu shots – wait, no! OK – flu shots might not be on your fall favorites list, but they should make an appearance on your fall to-do list. While recent years have brought doubt and suspicion to flu shots, we still feel they play a vital role in keeping your family healthy throughout the colder months. If you’re not convinced, here are 4 reasons to bring your family in to CarePro Pharmacy TODAY for your flu vaccine:
- Recommended for ALL AGES
In years past, the CDC recommended children and adults over the age of 18 get the vaccine, but now recommend everyone over the age of 6 months get the flu shot if they are able. There are some exceptions for those who have had a severe reaction to a previous flu vaccine.
- Flu Shot Timing is EVERYTHING
As the temperature drops, cases of the flu rise and gain momentum. Also, supplies are limited and the flu shot takes two weeks to take full effect. Get your family to CarePro Pharmacy TODAY to guarantee your vaccinations and provide the best flu protection possible for your family.
- When Flu Turns to Severe Pneumonia
Some of you may think, “What the hay, the flu only lasts a few days so why worry.” While this is true, there is a risk for individual with the flu to also develop pneumonia caused by MRSA, which is potentially life-threatening.
- Flu Fatalities
Over 207 children died from the flu last year. H1N1 can be extremely dangerous for children, pregnant women and the elderly.
In addition to getting the flu shot, we also recommend practicing good hygiene, diet and exercise to provide further protection against flu strains that may not be covered in this year’s vaccine. Come to CarePro Pharmacy for your flu shot this month and receive:
