Doctor's Advice: Flu Shot 2013

If you have not received a flu shot this year- now is the time to do it! It is NEVER to late - until you catch it that is! Flu shots are available at your local CVS, primary care physician, or at the hospital. The flu is making a big appearance this year especially in the Mid- Atlantic area.


You can NOT get the flu from the flu vaccine. Some people may feel a little under the weather for a day or two after getting the shot, but trust me - this is NOT the flu. The flu will keep you out of action for a week or two with symptoms like : fatigue, aches, fevers, diarrhea, vomiting etc.

If you do have flu like symptoms : REST, drink water/ 100% juices and STAY HOME!

In public, carry around hand sanitizers as you can not always access a wash room.

Stay healthy!
