Flu season in the United States begins as early as October and can last well into May. During this critical time, the flu virus is circulating at high levels, and depending on the season, as many as 49,000 people can be infected in the US. This is a serious illness that can lead to hospitalization and even death.
The best way to reduce your risk of getting the flu and contaminating others is to get the seasonal flu vaccine. The flu vaccine helps your body create antibodies that will protect you from infection. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that everyone six months and older get a flu vaccine every season. Twin Oaks Urgent Care offers flu vaccines every day without an appointment.
Bacterial meningitis is a serious, but uncommon disease with many complications. Newborns, children, and young adults are the most vulnerable. There are vaccines to prevent the most common types of meningitis and it is recommended for most children and adults, depending on individual risk factors. While not 100% effective against the disease, vaccinations have greatly reduced the occurrence of meningitis in the United States.
These are serious diseases, all caused by bacteria. Pertussis and diphtheria are both spread through person-to-person contact, while tetanus enters the body through wounds and cuts.
All of these serious illnesses can be prevented with the Tdap vaccine. Infants and children should get the DTaP vaccine in several doses from their primary care physician. The Tdap vaccine offered at Twin Oaks Urgent Care is recommended for people from 11 to 64 years of age.
Vaccinations are an important part of any preventive health program. Lower your risk and protect yourself and your family by following the CDC’s recommended vaccination schedule. At Twin Oaks Urgent Care in Friendswood, TX we make it easy. Contact us today at (832) 569-4390.
