Flu Clinic

Flu Clinic

 

 

The Nurse Practitioner Clinic offers flu clinics during the fall allowing our patients to book an appointment to receive their flu shot. The flu shot is available to everyone aged 6 months or older, unless there is a medical reason not to.

The flu shot works by prompting your body to build its natural immunity. You get the flu shot, which contains inactive (dead) flu viruses. When your body comes into contact with the flu - even though the strains are inactive, you make antibodies that fight those viruses—even though they are inactive. You're now ready to fight off those flu viruses, using your own natural antibodies. Basically the flu shot, and all vaccinations, help your body build natural immunities by triggering a natural response from your immune system.
