Flu season is rapidly approaching as the weather changes here in Michigan. As we walk through grocery stores, school halls, or malls we hear sneeze after sneeze, cough after cough, or see kids running around with runny noses. Sure, these may just be symptoms of a common cold, but as germs are spread, the flu virus may be on board!
It is recommended that everyone receive a flu shot to help prevent the flu this year. The occurrence of the flu is predicted to be more than last year. Ensuring that you are doing everything that you can to prevent yourself from getting the flu is important.
Contact our Westland Clinic – Millennium Medical Group today to schedule your flu shot or speak with a doctor about the flu shot today.
Flu Vaccinations are in and every flu season is different. It is very important to receive your flu vaccine, healthy people can get sick from the flu and spread it to others as well. Getting your flu vaccine is important to lessen the chance of getting the seasonal flu and spreading it to others.
The flu vaccine works by causing antibodies to develop in the body two weeks after you receive the vaccination, these antibodies protect against infection with the viruses that are in the vaccine.
When people in the community get vaccinated against the flu, it will spread less through your community. Come see our doctors at Millennium Medical Clinic in Westland Michigan and Livonia Michigan and stay well this season.
