It’s that time of year again. Flu season is heading our way. The Flu vaccine has begun shipping for the 2012-2013 flu season. You can get your shot administered by Casselberry Physicians Group.
Here’s some quick facts about the Flu Shot…….
Everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine. It is especially important for some groups of people to get vaccinated. Those include: People with certain medical conditions like Asthma, Diabetes, and Chronic Lung Disease; Pregnant women, and people aged 65 and older. People who live with or care for seniors or others with certain medical conditions are at a higher risk of developing complications and should get the flu shot too.

Flu season begins in October and usually can last through May. You should get your flu shot before flu season starts. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body and provide protection against the flu.
