Flu Shots are here $35

Written by nxtconcepts on . Posted in Blog

Scioto Urgent Care is now offering seasonal flu shots for $35. This price will continue as long as supplies last. As you may be aware, for several winters now, season influenza shots have been in limited supplies.  We highly recommend that you come in to ensure that you are able to obtain the shot.

Patients older than 50; children older than 3 years; and children and adults with chronic medical conditions such as diabetes or heart disease are encouraged to be immunized against the flu because they’re more vulnerable than others. There’s an elevated risk to pregnant women and residents of nursing homes or long-term care facilities as well.


Did you know a flu shot can reduce your risk of getting the flu by up to 70%?
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends a flu shot for everyone 6 months and older.

According to the CDC website:
Influenza (the flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. Some people, such as older people, young children, and people with certain health conditions, are at high risk for serious flu complications. The best way to prevent the flu is by getting vaccinated each year.
In 2009-2010, a new and very different flu virus (called 2009 H1N1) spread worldwide causing the first flu pandemic in more than 40 years. During the 2010-2011 flu season, CDC expects the 2009 H1N1 virus to cause illness again along with other influenza viruses. The 2010-2011 flu vaccine will protect against 2009 H1N1 and two other influenza viruses.
