Get Your Flu Shot Today in Alpharetta, GA – No Appointment Necessary!
Take steps to protect your health and your family’s health against the unpredictable influenza virus. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), flu season begins when certain key flu indicators rise and remain elevated for a number of consecutive weeks. This typically begins mid-Fall, but then peaks during the winter months of January and February. Everyone from 6 months of age and older is advised to get a yearly flu vaccine as it’s the most important and effective step in preventing yourself from contracting this contagious, and often serious, virus.
The flu virus varies from year-to-year in its spread. Side effects from the flu vaccine are extremely rare and largely non-serious. If they do occur, it’s within a few minutes to a few hours after getting the shot and may include aching and/or swell in your arm or cold-like symptoms. It is critical to note that the advantages of getting a flu shot far outweigh the risk of not getting a flu shot. Contact your insurance provider to ensure that your vaccine is covered. We accept most insurances, and even for patients without insurance, our flu vaccines are affordable.
