Seasonal Flu Shots
It’s never too early for preventative health – our Brooklyn clinics are now offering the seasonal flu vaccine for the upcoming flu season. Even those who are in perfect health should protect themselves by getting vaccinated. A flu vaccine reduces the risk of the deadly viral infection by up to 60% – this reduction can be life or death for vulnerable and immo-compromised populations.
Every year, the flu virus mutates and evolves to find new ways to attack your immune system, so even if you’ve been previously vaccinated, it is important to get the updated vaccine. Contrary to popular belief, flu shots do not contain the live flu virus or harmful preservatives such as mercury.
