Flu Season Update: Time to Stay Vigilant!
As the seasons change and children start school – whether remote or live, those of us in healthcare turn our attention to “Flu Season.” This year, as we face the ongoing challenges of fighting Covid 19, it is even MORE important to protect ourselves and our families from Influenza.
MRPG patients can call their provider’s office to schedule appointments for flu shots and get information on when their provider’s office will hold flu shot clinics. Our Urgent Care locations also have doses of adult flu vaccine (ages 18 and over) should patients present there for an acute problem, and want to receive their vaccine. Lastly, many pharmacies carry adult flu vaccines and can immunize patients who go there for prescriptions or other needs.
Our practices that care for children will have flu vaccines available at all well visits, acute visits and during flu shot clinics. Please contact your specific pediatrician’s office for details.
If we all do our part by receiving our flu vaccine this season, we are hopeful to keep the spread of the virus to a minimum and help keep each other healthy and safe.
In good health,
