Should you get an Influenza vaccination this 2020-2021 Season?
We’re not saying that because we offer Influenza vaccinations/Flu Shots, onsite screenings or flu clinics but because we really believe it! Flu shots will be in stock at all of the regular places so by September, although influenza season doesn’t generally start in the US until October/November and generally peaks at the beginning of the next year (2021). It takes a few weeks for it to start working in your body. So keep that in mind when you’re planning..
With all the changes that COVID-19 has brought, you need to start thinking ahead and planning ahead too.
Where should I get my flu shot?
Minimizing contact with others during this Pandemic may take some planning. The normal places like doctor offices, pharmacies and urgent care facilities and clinics will have the vaccination but they may have those fighting some kind of illness already at them. What we’re suggesting is to talk to your workplace. If you’re already working in the office, why not also get your influenza vaccination there as well? If they aren’t offering them, ask why then if it’s not something that’s going to happen pick the safest out of your other options.
Can the flu shot prevent me from getting Covid-19?
Why this year? Why now? The flu isn’t fun any year but this year with Covid-19, it could be worse. Not only is there the potential to get the flu and Covid-19 at the same time but taking steps towards decreasing the chances of getting the flu will help the hospital system that may already be struggling. A hospital system overall that is already being pushed to its limits.
Another point to think about, people who wouldn’t normally go to the doctors or hospital ER may go this year because of their “flu-like” symptoms that have symptoms in common with Covid-19.
Should I get my flu shot this year? Yes. 100%
With the potential of getting flu and Covid-19 at the same time, it’s more important than ever to get a flu shot.
Where should I get my flu shot? The simple answer: Where ever you think you’ll run into less sick people.
