Flu season in Colorado can be unpredictable and difficult and people need flu shots that are convenient and delivered with care. For people that work in office buildings, children at school, and for people travelling during the holidays, a flu shot makes all the sense in the world. Before the winter flu season begins, consider getting flu shots for the whole family at Front Range Primary Care (FRPC).
The flu vaccine is updated every flu season in response to the changing nature of the flu. The most common viruses are vaccinated against according to the current environment. Some years, there is a limited amount of the vaccine produced and it is advisable to get those people vaccinated before the season that are at greatest risk to come down with the flu. Young children and the elderly should be cared for as a matter of priority.
It is highly recommended that all people over six months old get a flu shot annually. This is especially true for children under two years old, and for adults age 50 and above. While certain demographics are at greater risk of getting the flu, it is now recommended by health professionals for all people over six months old. And for healthcare providers that work with children under the age of six months, it is doubly important that they be vaccinated against the flu. FRPC is the family practice of choice for preventative medicine as flu season approaches.
FRPC is your partner in health for the whole family. Flu shots are offered at competitive prices in the convenience of a family doctor’s office that is comfortable and convenient. Each year, over 200,000 people are hospitalized from the flu. The side effects from flu vaccine are limited and contrary to common perception, the vaccine cannot actually give you the flu. It is made from weakened forms of the virus.
In addition to the flu vaccine, FRPC also treats children and adults for several other accinations and immunizations. This may be especially important for those who are travelling out of the country. Before the symptoms strike, visit FRPC for a flu shot or any of the following:
Front Range Primary Care maintains a focus on the health of your family with ongoing preventative medicine through vaccination and immunization. In the case of the flu, an ounce of prevention is generally worth a pound of cure. An inexpensive shot or intranasal application of the flu vaccine can save work days, can limit the spread of the flu in schools and businesses, and generally save a lot of time, money and suffering with the symptoms of the flu. This is the type of prevention that just makes sense for families and individuals in the Denver Metro Area. Visit the Locations page to see where you can get your flu shots this season.
