Flu season has started as we at Family Practice Center have already had several patients test positive for the flu. Flu vaccines are now available, and influenza vaccination is recommended for all patients 6 months of age and older. It is also safe to receive a flu vaccine if you have an allergy to egg.
The influenza virus mutates throughout the year so new vaccines are produced each year to better match the circulating virus. Our immunity also decreases over the year following vaccination, which is another reason to receive the vaccine each Fall.
You can come into Family Practice Center at any time to receive your annual flu vaccine. Give us a call and we would be happy to schedule you! 404-256-1727
