The flu is more than a minor nuisance; it can result in severe illness or hospitalization and even death. Yearly flu shots are a crucial step to preventing your family from getting the flu.
It’s recommended that all patients, especially older and at-risk adults, receive an annual flu shot.
High-risk patients include those who have chronic conditions such as epilepsy, asthma, and Muscular dystrophy. You may be at a higher risk if you work in the healthcare industry or with children, have children in the home, or are pregnant.
