School has started and the mornings are getting cooler, so you know what’s coming…flu season.
I know what you are thinking. “Really, it’s that time of year again?”
Yes, it is!
Here are the reasons you should get your flu shot now instead of waiting:
- After you receive the flu vaccine, it takes 14 days before you are fully protected from the flu.
- The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) encourages everyone to receive their flu vaccine before cases of flu start to show up in the community, and by the end of October at the latest.
- Before you decide not to receive a flu vaccination, think of your elderly or young family members and friends. By protecting yourself against the flu, you are protecting them as well.
- At Sona, we can bill Medicare Part B, NC Medicaid, Blue Cross Blue Shield of NC, and Federal Blue Cross Blue Shield and others for the flu vaccine and usually it’s a $0 copay.
Feel free to drop by Sona Pharmacy and get your flu shot today!
