A Convenient Way to Get Your Annual Flu Shot if You’re in Clarkston, MI
No one likes to be sick, and the symptoms caused by the influenza virus are among the most miserable an illness can inflict. If you’re like many of our patients at Springfield Urgent Care, that’s reason enough to get a flu shot every year. Getting a flu vaccine is one of the best ways to prevent contracting this highly contagious virus that most of us dread, and the Centers for Disease Control recommends that almost everyone, from infants and children to senior adults, get an annual flu shot.
If that’s not a good enough reason for you, consider that:
- Studies indicate that U.S. workers miss more than 100 million workdays a year due to flu, costing employers billions of dollars in lost productivity
- More than half of student absences in U.S. schools during January and February are attributed to flu, and many flu-stricken teachers take sick time as well, thus potentially affecting children’s progress in learning
- Although most people contracting flu will recover within a week or two, thousands die each year due to flu-related complications
