2020 Flu Shot Clinics

Jul 31, 2020 | Featured, Healthy Living, In The Community, News, Service

The introduction of Fall and Winter means it’s officially “flu season.” While the flu can stay around all year, the typical peak flu season lasts from December to February but can last as late as May. With the presence of COVID-19 this year, it is more important than ever to get your flu shot. The flu shot has important benefits like reducing flu illnesses, doctors’ visits, and missed work or school. It is best to get the shot early before the flu begins spreading in the community. It takes up to two weeks after vaccination for the protective antibodies to fully develop, so the CDC recommends getting the shot sometime in September and October. However, vaccination anytime during flu season will provide benefits. The most important thing is for all people 6 months and older to get a flu vaccine every year.

Starting September 7th, AFM is offering flu vaccines at all offices and urgent care locations.

NOTICE – 9/22/20 – AFM is experiencing a brief shortage of high-dose flu vaccines. Supply of high-dose flu vaccines should resume in 1-2 weeks.

To help maintain social distance, we are offering Saturday drive-thru flu shot clinics at three of our locations this fall. For the safety of patients and staff, AFM will not administer flu shots to children while they are in a vehicle at our drive-thru clinics. Please be sure to wear appropriate clothing to receive a flu shot
