Also: Flu Shots
Flu shots deserve special mention as they are not a part of the routine check-up schedule. Influenza sickens tens of thousands of people across the United States each winter. The flu and its complications can be deadly, particularly for high risk individuals. Children under five years (particularly under 2), the elderly and those with chronic medical conditions are at highest risk.
The best way to protect yourself and your family from the flu is to get a flu shot each year. Flu shots are recommended for ALL persons 6 months and above. PAC offers flu vaccine in the late summer/fall at routine check-ups and special flu vaccination clinics. Make sure your child gets a flu vaccination every year.
