Why Get a Flu Shot This Season?

The flu is a potentially life-threatening illness that affects up to 1 in 5 people each season. Anyone can get the flu, and unlike the common cold, the flu can cause serious complications leading to hospitalization or in extreme cases even death. The most common flu strains change every year, so you need to update your vaccine annually. For 2017-2018 Partners Urgent Care will be offering the quadrivalent flu vaccine, which offers protection against the four flu virsuses most likely to cause illness this season.

Did you know?

  • The flu shot saved 40,000 lives over a nine-year period beginning in 2005
  • 60% of patients hospitalized for flu/flu-related illness were adults
  • Kids under 17 are the most at risk for flu-related deaths

When Should I Get a Flu Shot?

Flu season typically spikes between October and February but can be unpredictable some seasons. It takes ten days after you receive the shot to reach full protective immunity. This is why it is especially important to get your vaccine as soon as possible.
