The Flu Vaccine

  

The Flu Vaccine

The Flu VaccineInfluenza, commonly referred to as the flu, is a serious illness that can lead to hospitalization and even death. Symptoms of the flu include:

  • Fever and/or chills
  • Sore throat
  • Runny nose or congestion
  • Cough
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue

Most people over the age of six months can receive the flu vaccine. The vaccine doesn’t give people the flu, but it does make some people feel tired or achy. Others may also have a mild fever after the injection. However, the vaccine is the best protection against getting the flu.

Women can also help their families avoid the flu by following these tips.

  • Wash hands frequently
  • Keep hands away from the nose, mouth and eyes
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces frequently at home and at work
  • Cover the mouth with a tissue or sleeve – not with hands – when coughing or sneezing

Oakwood Women’s Centre at Seton Williamson provides expert care for women, including offering the flu vaccine. Our Round Rock obgyns urge our patients to get the flu vaccine and make sure that their families are vaccinated, too. Contact us to schedule.
