According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, thousands of people die from flu (influenza) related causes each year. Flu vaccines are the best way to help your body develop antibodies to protect against the infection. Since the flu virus is constantly changing, flu shots are developed to protect your body from the three most common flu viruses.
Whether your vaccination is required by your workplace, you want to get vaccinated for a loved one who is elderly or has a compromised immune system, or you simply want to receive the vaccination to avoid getting the flu, Briarwood Clinic can help. We can also provide flu testing to help determine if you already have the flu.
