It’s that time of year again – flu season. UT Physicians will be offering the flu vaccine at select locations for $19.
Last year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that the flu vaccine prevented approximately 7 million cases of the flu. For young children, adults age 65 and older, pregnant women and those with underlying health conditions, the flu can be a serious and sometimes life-threatening illness. As a result, the influenza vaccine is recommended for all persons ages 6 months and older.
“This year, the flu vaccine will contain protection against two strains of Flu A and two strains from Flu B. There is also a high dose vaccine available for adults over the age of 50, if medically indicated,” said Thomas J. Murphy, MD, a family medicine physician and chief medical offer of the UT Physicians community-based clinics.
Excluded from this special is the FluMist, which is available for individuals ages 2 to 49 years old.
