What Are Flu Vaccines?

While flu shots are not 100% foolproof, studies show that people who have been vaccinated have a stronger chance of being immune to the flu and they also prevent the spread of this nasty bug. Even though one may have had a flu shot last year this does not mean you will be immune to the virus that will be floating around this year. That’s why it is very important to receive a flu vaccine in Pensacola every year, preferably in the early fall.

Who Should Get Vaccinated?

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that everyone 6 months or older get a flu vaccination. It’s especially important for people in high-risk groups:

  • Children aged 6 months to 5 years
  • Adults 65 or older
  • Healthcare providers
  • Pregnant women
  • Nursing home residents

How Effective Is The Flu Shot?

The ability of a flu shot to guard an individual all depends on the person’s age and current health. Recent studies done by the CDC indicate that flu shots reduce your risk of getting the flu by between 40% and 60%.

What Are The Risks From Getting A Flu Shot?

Flu vaccines do not cause flu illness. Flu vaccines stimulate your body’s immune system into creating antibodies. These antibodies are developed via your body’s reaction to the flu vaccine. While your body is creating these antibodies within 2-4 days of receiving the vaccination you may develop flu-like symptoms. These side effects are mild and short-term, especially when compared to a bad case of flu.

Save Money

While it seems so easy to dismiss when you’re healthy, the flu is a disease that is extremely expensive – especially for business owners. All of those missed working days or reduced productivity levels for employees who DO actually venture into work when they’re starting to come down with the flu or on the tail end of their recovery from it add up. All of those germs being passed around from one person to the next, which continues the vicious cycle of low-performance levels and missing employees can be mitigated with low-cost flu shots.

Rather than simply trying to shut your eyes and ignore flu season altogether, it’s a wise business practice to encourage your employees to get flu shots. Fortunately for people who don’t have a big budget for medical care, we at ProHealth offer low-cost flu shots for $32 available at any of our many locations.

Save Time

When a client comes into our flu clinics to receive one of our low-cost flu shots, you are welcomed to walk in, and we will take care of you as quickly as possible. We know that you are busy, and we will get you in and out as efficiently as we can!

Whether you realize it or not, flu season lasts more than six months of the year, running from October until May with its highest peak months between December and February. That’s quite a long time to be dodging the flu outbreak, but a simple flu shot can put your mind at ease. One shot, and you’ll know that your immune system is well fortified against the swirling soup of flu that hits the country with such force each year.

Inexpensive Doesn’t Mean Ineffective

The low-cost flu shots we provide at ProHealth are every bit as effective as those offered within traditional hospital settings that may cost far more. The cost may seem low, but the benefits are greatly invaluable to you and the people around you. We highly encourage business owners to urge their employees of the need to be vaccinated, and we hope that individuals will take it upon themselves to stop into one of our locations to receive a low-cost flu shot from one of our technicians.

At ProHealth, we pride ourselves on the quality of our care and the personal service we offer each patient who walks through our doors. Whether someone comes into one of our ProHealth facilities for full-service medical care or is seeking a low-cost flu shot, our team of healthcare experts and physicians is completely dedicated to providing whatever care you might need and the answers you seek.
