Every Naples Medical Clinic offers Flu shots but the real question is:
Should I Get a Flu Shot?
At Advance Medical of Naples, we offer flu shots and recommend that you go to your walk in clinic and make this an annual practice. Our Naples physicians highly recommend that you be prepared for flu season with a flu shot. If you live in Naples year-round and are over 50, you absolutely need to seek the closest medical center and get the flu shot. It is cheap, fast and painless. There is simply no excuse. Naples is a vacationers winter destination and as a result our visitors often bring unwanted flu virus with them.
Influenza is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Every flu season is different and an influenza infection can affect people differently. Even healthy people will need to visit their primary care physician as they can get very sick from the flu and spread it to others. Over a period of 31 seasons between 1976 and 2007, medical groups, reported flu-associated deaths in the United States ranged from a low of about 3,000 to a high of about 49,000 people. During a regular flu season, about 90 percent of deaths occur in people 65 years and older. The “seasonal flu season” in the United States can begin as early as October and last as late as May.
During this time, flu viruses are circulating all over Naples and the surrounding areas. An annual trip to our advanced Naples medical center to receive your seasonal flu vaccine (either the flu shot or the nasal-spray flu vaccine) is the best way to reduce the chances that you will get the seasonal flu and spread it to others. The more people that go to their local walk in clinic and are vaccinated against the flu means less flu can spread through the Naples community.
