Healthcare 101: Have you had your flu shot?

Ultimate Florida Family Theme Park Vacation Contest

Have you had your flu shot?

If you haven’t, it’s still not too late! Getting a flu shot every year is a great way to protect you and your loved ones from getting the flu. You can get the shot at your doctor’s office, health clinic, or local pharmacy.

What if you think you already have the flu?

If you suspect you have the flu, seek medical help within 48 hours of feeling sick. This especially applies to people over 65, children under age 5, pregnant women, and people with asthma, lung disease, heart disease or blood disorders.

There are lots of ways to get the medical help you need: You can visit your primary care physician, a pharmacy, a retail clinic, or urgent care center in your network. Getting care quickly can sometimes mean the difference between being mildly sick, getting pneumonia, or perhaps becoming seriously ill. Your healthcare provider may be able to prescribe an antiviral drug to help reduce the severity and duration of the flu.
