Some people question whether flu shots are actually necessary, but at MedRite Urgent Care, we advocate receiving a flu vaccine at the start of each flu season. The flu can be much more devastating than a cold, leading to dehydration and sometimes even hospitalization. Furthermore, many people in the population are more vulnerable to the debilitating effects of the flu, and by keeping yourself protected against this nasty virus, you can keep the people around you protected as well. It is especially important for you to receive a flu shot if you are a member of or regularly come in contact with any of the following groups of people in New York City:
- Pregnant women
- The elderly
- The immunocompromised, such as those with diabetes or asthma
- Healthcare workers
Additionally, flu shots administered in prior years are not guaranteed to protect against this year’s strains of the flu virus. This is why it is recommended to receive the shot again every year.
