During the pandemic, it is more important than ever to get your flu shot to stay healthy. MANA physicians and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommend you get a flu vaccine as early as possible this year.
According to the CDC, the flu vaccine has been shown to:
- prevent flu illnesses
- prevent doctor visits and hospitalizations
- can be life-saving in children
Who should get a flu shot?
The Centers for Disease Control recommends flu vaccine annually for adults and children age 6 months and older. There are different types of flu vaccines for different age groups. Fayetteville Diagnostic Clinic and some MANA Family Medicine clinics offer a high potency vaccine for adults 65+. Northwest Arkansas Pediatrics offers flu vaccines for children age 6 months to age 20.
