Flu Shots are Here!

Believe it or not, it is that time of year again! Flu shots are now available at Lakewood Family Medicine.

This year we have:

- high-dose influenza vaccine (age 65+ only)

- regular influenza vaccine (age 6 months - 64 years)

- 2 dose influenza vaccine (children age 6 months – 8 years who have not previously had a flu shot.)

- intradermal influenza vaccine - this is a GREAT option if you don't like shots! (age 18-64)

As always, there are a few contraindications to administering the vaccine. If you have questions or concerns, be sure to talk with your doctor or nurse when you come in for your vaccine.

Unfortunately, the nasal spray flu vaccine was not manufactured this year. However, we still encourage all those who are able to get vaccinated!

Stay healthy this fall and winter!
