Who should get a flu vaccine?
Everyone over the age of six months should get an annual influenza vaccination, according to the CDC. Vaccination is especially crucial for people who are at a high risk of complications from influenza, such as:
- Pregnant Women
- Elderly people
The first time a flu vaccine is administered to children aged 6 months to 8 years, they may require two doses, spaced at least four weeks apart. They can then receive a single annual flu vaccine dose.
Our Experienced Health Care Professionals will discuss your health and counsel you on preventative care and healthy choices.

When should I get vaccinated?
Because antibodies build in the body and provide protection against flu two weeks after immunization, you should get a flu vaccine before flu virus start circulating in your community. Make preparations to be vaccinated before the flu season starts in autumn. The CDC recommends getting a flu shot by the end of October. Getting vaccinated early (in July or August, for example) is not effective against flu infection later in the flu season, especially among elderly people.
We provide vaccination throughout the flu season. Children who require two vaccine shots should begin the process sooner rather than later, as two shots must be administered at least four weeks apart.
From where can I get a flu vaccine?
Many doctors’ offices, primary care and urgent care clinics, health departments, pharmacies, college health centers, and even some schools offer flu shots. Even if you don’t have a primary care physician or doctor, you can still get a flu shot from these facilities.
