Seasonal Flu Shots in Methuen, MA
The flu, also known as influenza, is one of the most deadly illnesses people come in contact with, killing over 36,000 people worldwide a year from complications. The flu season starts as early as October and can last up until May.
Some common symptoms of the flu include:
- Dry Cough
- Sore Throat
- Body Ache
One of the oldest and most effective methods of preventing the flu is by getting your annual flu shot. The seasonal flu vaccine protects against three different influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during the upcoming season. The best time to start getting your annual flu shot is between the months of September and October, right before the season reaches its peak by December.
