Do I need a flu shot?
If you can read this, you probably need a flu shot. Almost everyone over the age of six months should be vaccinated once every year against the seasonal influenza virus, which affects up to 20 percent of the American population according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Flu shots are particularly important for people who are considered to be at an increased risk for flu complications. These at-risk groups include:
- Adults over age 65
- Young children between six months and five years old
- Pregnant women or women who have recently given birth
- Individuals with chronic conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and HIV/AIDs
- People with asthma
Individuals who are severely ill or have an allergy to ingredients in the flu vaccine should not be vaccinated. However, these instances are rare. The experienced professionals at Fast Track Urgent Care can ensure that you are healthy enough to receive your flu shot and answer any questions you may have.
