Doctors expect to give 176 million doses of flu vaccines this season. The time is now to urge patients to get vaccinated, as the flu antibody can take two weeks to build up in the system.
The 2019 flu season is looking like a doozy – and outbreaks may already be beginning to spread across the country. Considering flu-related deaths since 2010 are estimated to have ranged from 12,000 to 56,000, it’s crucial to be prepared.
Dr. Rebecca LaValley at Primary Urgent Care also recommends practicing good hand-washing habits, and avoiding contact with symptomatic family members, friends and co-workers whenever possible. However, getting a flu shot should be a top priority as the flu season approaches.
