The Centers for Disease Control typically recommends flu shots for all individuals six months of age or older, noting that these vaccinations are especially important for the following individuals:
- Adults 65 years of age and older
- Adults of any age who live in a nursing home or long-term care facility
- Pregnant women and women who have given birth in the past two weeks
- Children between the ages of six months and five years
Flu shots are also highly important for individuals with medical conditions such as asthma, chronic lung disease, diabetes, or a weakened immune system due to cancer, a transplant, or an autoimmune disease. Because people with these conditions are more susceptible to serious complications if they catch the flu, vaccinations are strongly recommended for these individuals.
At MAXhealth Oaks of Sarasota, we encourage all of our patients to take simple steps to maintain their best possible health. Because flu shots are among the most important preventive care services that we offer, we are proud to provide this service on a walk-in basis for our existing patients. Immunizations are offered at all MAXhealth locations.
