During Your Annual Health Exam, Get Your Flu Shot

An annual health exam is extremely important, especially after reaching 50 years old. One of the most important aspects of receiving an annual exam is checking to make certain your immune system is strong.

Annually, one of the most detrimental illnesses that can affect your immune system is the flu. Getting ahead of the flu bug is important in order to avoid getting sick. As we discussed in the most recent blog post, the flu bug can be deadly, as thousands of Americans die from the flu virus. Many of these victims of the flu are older, which means their immune system isn’t as strong as those who are much younger.

At Medinet Family Care Clinic, our trained physicians know how to check your immune system and ensure you are healthy enough for the flu season. From heart rates to lung function, our medical staff will ensure you know where your health stands and what you can do to better your health.

A FLU SHOT CAN SAVE YOUR YEAR

Every year, flu season comes in and ruins people’s year. This can range from being sick for a few days to longer, and as aforementioned, has been known to cause death. Our health professionals recommend receiving the flu shot so that you can better fight off different strains of the airborne illness. At Medinet, we want to help keep you from getting sick, and the flu shot is a way to help achieve that.

With the holiday season starting up, now is the time to get the flu shot so that you don’t miss any of the holiday parties. Being healthy means you get to do everything you want, instead of being stuck indoors. So get your flu shot and avoid the aches and pains of the flu.
