HOUSTON The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now is recommending that everybody older than 6 months of age get vaccinated for the flu, as the flu has begun appearing in various states and last year’s H1N1 flu is expected to appear again.
In response, RediClinic is offering two options for vaccination: the traditional injectable vaccine and a nasal spray version.
“The flu can be miserable for anybody, but for some of us, it can be a life-threatening situation,” RediClinic VP clinical services Susan Cooley King said. “The flu can also make chronic health problems worse. The best way to prevent the flu is by getting vaccinated each year.”
