Flu Shots in Basking Ridge

Influenza, or the flu, is a serious disease that can cause even very healthy people to become quite sick. For at risk individuals – such as the very young, the very old, pregnant women and people with certain chronic medical conditions – getting the flu can result in hospitalization and possibly even death.

Fortunately, flu shots in Basking Ridge are available. These are your source for staying healthy this flu season, a time lasting from October to May. The influenza vaccine causes antibodies to develop in your body within two weeks of having the shot. These antibodies help protect against infection.

There are two reasons why seasonal flu shots are required. First, your body’s immune response from the vaccine declines over time, so a yearly dose is best for optimal protection from the disease.

Second, each flu season is a little different. Influenza viruses mutate every year and scientists research which strains of the virus will be most active during the upcoming season. With this information, unique vaccines are developed yearly to grant you the highest chance of protection from contracting the disease.

To get the most from your flu shot in Basking Ridge, seek vaccination by October. If you decide to get vaccinated later in the season, that’s okay too, since flu shots are offered continually throughout the flu season. However, it’s best to get vaccinated before influenza starts spreading through your community since it takes two weeks for the vaccine to take effect.
