Flu Shots in Weehawken
Fall marks the start of football season, pumpkins and apple pie. Unfortunately, it’s also the start of flu season. Have you gotten your flu shot in Weehawken yet? Schedule appointments for your whole family to enjoy the protection that seasonal flu shots offer.
It’s best to have your influenza vaccination early in the flu season so you have a chance to build up antibodies against the virus before you are ever exposed to it. It takes two weeks for the vaccine to create the necessary antibodies. Then, the protection against getting sick lasts all season long.
Even if you do become ill due to an imperfect match, your symptoms will be less severe and the sickness will go away faster. You are also protected from complications that sometimes arise from catching the flu, such as pneumonia.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that nearly everyone ages 6 months and older receive seasonal flu shots. The most important demographics include children younger than 5 years, adults over age 65, pregnant women and people with chronic respiratory conditions. These people are the most likely ones to experience complications from the flu.
