The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone age 6 months and older receive a flu shot. Getting the flu vaccine early in fall helps protect you before the flu spreads. After you get the shot, it takes about two weeks for your body to develop antibodies to protect you against the flu.
There are some people who are more likely to have complications when they get the flu: kids under age 5, adults 65 years and older, pregnant women, residents of nursing home and facilities, and American Indians and Alaskan Natives. So, it is important for these folks to get a flu shot to prevent severe flu complications.
Call (323)644-3888 to schedule a flu shot with as soon as possible! Ask your doctor or medical provider if you have any questions.
