Flu Shots at Medinet! Just $28 for Non-Insurance Patients.

Fall is here (official start is actually Sept. 22)! As the cooler weather starts coming in, unfortunately, so does the flu bug. Our physicians at Medinet Family Care Clinic in southwest Houston recommend that you receive your flu shot soon. Our healthcare clinic provides flu shots. For patients with health insurance, the entire procedure is typically covered. But some patients may have to pay a copay. If you don’t have insurance, the flu shot is still very cost-effective at just $28.

The flu bug can be a devastating health problem. According to the Center for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC), approximately 5% to 20% of Americans get the flu each year with more than 200,000 being hospitalized for the sickness. Flu can even cause death, which can happen in high volume. The average range of deaths is typically between 3,000 and 49,000. The highest in recent memory was in 2012-13 when there were approximately 56,000 deaths.

THE FLU IS SERIOUS. BE SERIOUS ABOUT THE FLU.

As aforementioned, the flu can be a very deadly illness, and if not treated quickly and correctly, can lead to deadly consequences. Although death by the flu virus is a rarity, especially in non-unique strain of the virus, it always leads to at least a miserable few days.

If the flu hits you or your kids, you can fully expect to miss a few days of work and your kids a few days of school. This always leads to falling behind in work or school. At Medinet, we recommend getting ahead of the flu by receiving your flu shot.

The flu shot is a quick and painless (more or less) procedure that will set you up for a much higher chance of avoiding the sickness.
