Flu Shots in Berkeley Heights

The flu is an ever-changing virus that causes many symptoms similar to the common cold. In children, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea are also common. Even normally healthy people can experience complications leading to pneumonia, which can result in hospitalization and possibly even death.

It sounds dire, but if the community works together and everyone receives a flu shot in Berkeley Heights, we can stop the spread of this potentially life-threatening disease. The people most at risk for suffering the worst complications from the flu include:

  • People with chronic respiratory problems and diabetes
  • Pregnant women
  • Children younger than 5 years old
  • Elderly people over 65 years old

In addition to this list, people who care for those who are at high risk of developing complications from pneumonia should also seek out a flu shot in Berkeley Heights this flu season.

To clarify, the “flu season” is a period lasting from about October to May. The earlier in the season you obtain an influenza vaccine the better because it takes two weeks for the shot to build the necessary antibodies that protect you from the virus. If you get your seasonal flu shot after others in the community have already contracted the disease, you are at greater risk for getting it yourself during that two-week window.
