Get Vaccinated For The Flu At Your New Haven County Urgent Care CenterOctober 20, 2018 6:45 pm
This past week has seen Connecticut’s first death from the flu of the season. Believe it or not we are already into flu season and experts are warning that this could be a serious strain of the flu this year and so it is important, especially among the most vulnerable to get vaccinated. Young children and the elderly are always the most vulnerable to the flu, but anyone is susceptible who has not gotten vaccinated and that’s why here at our New Haven County urgent care center we urge everyone to get vaccinated.
The flu season generally stretches from December to February with the highest instances of fly related illnesses and deaths, but the influenza virus is around all year and so now is the time to protect yourself against this pesky illness. With nearly 30,000 people per year dying due to the flu it is not something that you should mess around with. Getting your flu shot now can not only prevent serious illness but in some cases death.
If you haven’t gotten your vaccination and you’re experiencing the typical fly like symptoms such as fever, cough, chills, muscle aches, and head aches, you should be seen by someone to make sure that they illness does not progress beyond these symptoms.
Flu season in Connecticut is under way and we want to make sure that you’re protected and we limit the flu issues throughout the state this season.
