Immunizations and Vaccines

Immunizations should start with newborns, through childhood and adolescence and into adulthood. Immunizations are recommended because they protect against diseases and make a disease less severe if it is contracted. Felix Medical Group has a very knowledgeable staff that can answer any questions you might have about vaccines and immunizations for all ages.

Influenza (Flu) Vaccines

In the United States flu outbreaks usually occur in winter months. Thousands of people in the U.S. die each year from the flu or its complications. The flu is a contagious respiratory disease caused by influenza virus. The symptoms can include fever, chills, coughing, and sore muscles.
According to the Center for Disease Control getting an annual flu shot can reduce the risk of you getting the flu. The flu shot is highly recommended and is available for anyone over the age of 6 months. Some people do carry a higher risk in contracting the flu. You should be vaccinated every year if you meet any of the following criteria.

Are 50 years of age or older
Have chronic lung or heart disease
Have sickle cell anemia and other hemoglobinopathies
Live in a nursing home or extended care facilities
Live in any type of housing where there are chronic health problems
