Choose Heritage Urgent & Primary Care for Your
Flu Vaccination
in Wake Forest & Raleigh

Influenza is a set of viruses that are highly contagious and can quickly affect individuals of all ages. Every year, influenza causes several million people to become ill, and of those, hundreds of thousands will require hospitalization, and thousands of those cases will be fatal. One of the most important steps you can take to avoid being impacted by the flu every year is to schedule an appointment for a flu vaccine. By scheduling an appointment for regular flu vaccines, you can significantly reduce your risk of becoming infected and infecting your family, friends, and community.

It generally takes around two weeks following your shot for protection to develop. Although the antibodies that are developed by the flu vaccination will remain in your body for years, influenza viruses are always changing and continue to mutate and travel around the world, which is why it is recommended that you receive vaccinations annually.

How to Prevent the Flu

Although there are several things you can do to reduce your risk of getting the flu, such as washing your hands frequently or avoiding direct contact with individuals who have the flu, one of the most effective ways to avoid the flu is to get a flu shot annually. Although getting a flu vaccine does not guarantee that you will avoid the flu completely, many times patients who do receive vaccines have a milder form and experience less complications from the flu than those who do not get vaccines.

Following your flu shot, you may experience muscle aches, headaches, and/or a low-grade fever as well as redness, tenderness, or soreness around the area of the shot. Sometimes people see these as indications that the flu shot is harmful or can even cause influenza. It is important to be aware that the flu vaccine only contains weakened or inactivated flu viruses, which are not capable of causing an infection, and receiving this vaccine is your best bet against avoiding the flu.
