Flu Shot in Dunellen

Did you or a family member get the flu last season? If you want to avoid taking any sick days this upcoming flu season – which lasts from about October through May – plan on taking extra precautions against getting sick.

First of all, avoid close contact with anyone who has the flu. Wash your hands frequently to kill germs that cause the illness and avoid touching your face throughout the day. Help your immune system stay strong by getting plenty of sleep, drinking lots of water and eating a nutritious diet. If anyone in your home becomes sick, disinfect frequently touched surfaces, such as doorknobs, light switches and TV remotes to help prevent the illness from spreading.

Finally, make sure to get your flu shot in Dunellen this year. It’s important to get vaccinated annually because every flu season is different. The virus morphs every year, making last year’s immunization ineffective this time around. The Centers for Disease Control states that getting vaccinated is the best way to protect against the flu.

Fortunately, getting a flu shot in Dunellen is quick and easy when you choose Astrahealth for the service. Keep in mind that young children, the elderly, pregnant women and people with certain chronic health conditions are most susceptible to complications from contracting the flu. Such complications could result in a hospital visit and might become serious enough to be life threatening.

Even if you don’t fit within the at-risk demographic, you should still plan to have everyone in your family six months and older get a vaccine this year. This is a wise move to help keep the flu out of your home so no one has to miss work or school.
