Flu Vaccines Administered in Dallas, TX
Flu vaccines are unquestionably the best way to defend your health against the seasonal influenza virus during the flu season, which includes the fall and winter months. If you’d like to avoid catching the flu and suffering through muscle aches, fever, and chills, stop by Citra Urgent Care in Dallas, Texas, and receive an annual flu vaccine in a modern clinical setting. Unlike primary centers that are booked days or even weeks in advance, Citra Urgent Care offers flu vaccines without appointments and has extended hours every day of the week; stop by at your convenience Sunday through Saturday between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m.
Flu vaccines help prevent the flu by triggering the growth of antibodies in the bloodstream. There is still a small chance that people can contract the flu after getting vaccinated, but symptoms will likely be much less severe than if they had not been vaccinated at all.
Anyone– even young, healthy adults – in Dallas and throughout the country can contract the influenza virus. With that said, there are certain groups that are at a higher risk of becoming ill from the flu, and should take extra precaution to be vaccinated.
- People over the age of 65
- Children age 6 and younger (although infants under 6 months should not be vaccinated)
- Pregnant women and women who have recently given birth
- People with certain chronic conditions, including diabetes, and heart disease
