Who Should Get a Flu Shot?
At HealthPlus Urgent Care, we provide flu vaccination to all patients aged six months old and up. It’s important for people of all ages to receive their flu shot to decrease the likelihood of spreading the virus. However, it’s important for patients who have previously experienced an allergic reaction to the shot, or have an egg allergy, to consult with their provider about alternative methods of flu prevention. This is because traditional flu vaccines typically contain egg products. Certain groups of people may be at a higher risk for developing severe symptoms of influenza once infected, so they should seek to acquire a flu shot early on.
Groups of people that should receive a flu shot early in the season include:
Adults over the age of 65
Those with weakened immune system
Those with underlying health conditions
Healthcare or childcare providers
