Influenza can be a serious respiratory infection. Many strains of influenza can be prevented and complications lessened with the flu vaccine. One shot, received ideally in the fall of each year, will last you through to the spring of the following year. The side effects of the flu vaccine are generally mild and include soreness or redness at the site of the injection, some diffuse muscle aches and sometimes a transient fever. Serious side effects are rare. You should not have a flu shot if you are allergic to thimerosal, neomycin or eggs, or have had a significant reaction to prior dosages of the flu vaccine. The flu shot is recommended for all individuals age 6 months and older. The office and most pharmacies have more information for you if you wish.     

Thank You.
