Seasonal Influenza (Flu) Vaccine

The flu vaccine is recommended annually, preferably before the start of flu season, which usually peaks in the fall and winter months. Getting vaccinated against the flu can help protect you from the seasonal influenza virus and its potentially serious complications.

Tetanus and Diphtheria (Td) or Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis (Tdap) Vaccine

Adults are advised to receive a tetanus booster shot every 10 years to maintain immunity against tetanus and diphtheria. For individuals who have not received the Tdap vaccine, it is usually recommended to get it once, followed by Td boosters every 10 years.

Pneumococcal Vaccine

The pneumococcal vaccine is recommended for adults over 65 years old and for younger individuals with certain medical conditions or risk factors. Depending on individual health needs, different types of pneumococcal vaccines may be administered, and booster doses may be recommended.

COVID-19 Booster Vaccine

COVID-19 booster shots can help enhance waning immunity over time and provide additional protection against severe illness, hospitalization, and emerging variants of the virus. By getting a booster shot, you can strengthen your immune response, potentially increase the duration of protection, and contribute to overall efforts to control the spread of COVID-19.

It is important to consult with your healthcare provider or a vaccination specialist to determine the appropriate vaccinations for your individual needs and to follow the recommended vaccination schedule. Don’t hesitate to call us today if you have any questions and schedule an appointment today!
