Receive a Flu Vaccination at Florida Medical Clinic

Flu Vaccination

A flu vaccination is the most effective defense against catching the flu. Each year, more than 140 million doses of the influenza vaccine are produced and distributed, helping countless individuals stay well throughout flu season and beyond. Taking evidence-based research into consideration, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends an annual flu vaccination for all individuals six months of age and older.

At Florida Medical Clinic, we offer flu vaccinations to help all of our patients stay healthy, while also protecting those who are at the highest risk of serious complications if they catch the flu. Vaccines are especially important for:

  • Adults 65 years of age and older
  • Women who are pregnant or have recently given birth
  • Children five years of age and younger
  • Individuals with cancer, HIV, AIDS, or other conditions that can weaken the immune system
  • Individuals with heart disease, kidney disease, chronic lung disease (including COPD), or liver disease

Not only can a flu vaccination reduce a person’s likelihood of contracting the flu, but it can also help reduce the severity and longevity of symptoms if he or she does get sick. Flu vaccinations are typically designed to provide protection against three or four particular strains of influenza. Should an individual become infected with a strain that was not included in his or her vaccine, the vaccination can still help limit the amount of time it takes to get over the illness.

If you’d like to get a flu vaccination for you or your family at Florida Medical Clinic, contact us today. We offer flu vaccination services at many different locations throughout the area.
