Why Get a Vaccine?
Vaccines have helped greatly reduce and even eliminate certain infectious diseases. These diligently tested vaccines work with your body to help you build immunity, lowering your chance of getting the disease and the associated complications. All vaccines, including the flu shot, are constantly monitored by both the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to track safety.
5 reasons to receive a vaccine include:
- Ensure your child, or children, are up to date on school-required vaccinations
- Prepare yourself, or your loved ones, for international travel
- Proactively protect yourself from the flu
- Meet requirements laid out by your employer
- Protect vulnerable, or immunocompromised, members of your family from the illnesses they are more susceptible to
No matter the reason you are exploring your options for vaccines or flu shots, you can count on our team to walk you through the process, answering any questions you might have to keep you informed and comfortable.

Can you get the flu after getting the flu vaccine?
Yes, it's possible to contract the flu after receiving the flu vaccine, as the vaccine may not cover all strains. However, vaccination significantly reduces the severity of symptoms, lowers the risk of complications, and enhances the body's ability to fight the virus. It remains a crucial preventive measure.
