FLU VACCINE SEASON
Hopefully this year’s flu vaccine will be more successful than last year’s. Some people may have questions concerning the regular dose versus the high dose vaccine. In our office we only use the regular dose. We are aware that the immune system weakens as we age but studies show that only 1 case of the flu will be prevented out of 217 people over 65 given the higher dose.
If you want to get the vaccine we can give it to you during your office visit or if you just call the office, we will be happy to administer it to you without seeing the doctors.
While in the office, we may discuss other vaccines like the pneumonia, vaccine, shingles vaccine or DTaP (tetanus booster) which can be given at the same time, if indicated..
Most vaccines are covered by insurance and costs the same or LESS than your local pharmacy.
