Get the Flu Vaccine in Houston

By

Flu season officially begins in the month of October and usually lasts through May (end times may vary). The ideal time to vaccinate is late September or early October. While the flu vaccine is recommended for all people over 6 months of age, it is especially important for those who are: a) health care professionals b) pregnant during flu season c) residents of nursing homes d) sufferers of chronic respiratory disorders People who should NOT receive the flu vaccine include those who: a) have a severe egg allergy b) children younger than 6 months c) have had a previous allergic reaction to the flu vaccine d) are ill with a fever HISD Vaccination Requirements The flu vaccine is administered in two ways: an inactivated influenza injection via needle, or a live influenza vaccine which is sprayed into the nasal passages. It is important to get the flu shot yearly as each new year brings a new string of the virus. The vaccine lasts for up to a year, but recipients should allow 2 weeks for either vaccine to fully protect against the flu virus.
