Contrary to popular belief, the flu vaccine does not cause the flu. However, without the vaccine this disease is extremely contagious and can lead to much more serious illnesses.
Why take the chance when you can easily prevent it ?
It is recommended that everyone older than 6 months receive an annual influenza vaccination. Some side effects may include irritation at the vaccination site, muscle aches, fever and soreness. It is important to know that these side effects are NOT the flu and these side effects are not always experienced in every individual plus they only last a day or two.
Flu shots will be available at Precision Pharmacy later this month, so please make sure to stop in to get yours ! No appointment necessary and we hope to see you soon !!
