Flu Season

Fall is here, it’s time to get your flu shot. The flu vaccine this year is only in injectable form due to manufacturing issues with the nasal mist. That doesn’t mean you skip it this year, for those of you who have needle phobias….there is an intradermal flu vaccine (teenie tiny needle you can barely see) that is available you can get. Don’t forget, if you are over 65, you should get the high dose quadrivalent vaccine. Ask your provider or pharmacist if you are eligible for the pneumonia vaccine as well (there are two updates depending on your age and underlying health condition). Call the office if you have any questions or would like to make an appointment to discuss your vaccine status. As always, stay healthy!
