August is National Immunization Awareness Month

Fall is around the corner and Flu season will soon be rearing its ugly head.

Influenza is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Every flu season is different, and influenza infection can affect people differently. Even healthy people can get very sick from the flu and spread it to others

The CDC has the following recommendations:

CDC has recommended an annual influenza vaccination for everyone ages 6 months and older.

People who should not receive the flu shot:

Children younger than 6 months are too young to get a flu shot
People with severe, life-threatening allergies to flu vaccine or any ingredient in the vaccine. This might include gelatin, antibiotics, or other ingredients.

People who should talk to their doctor before getting the flu shot:

If you have an allergy to eggs or any of the ingredients in the vaccine. Talk to your doctor about your allergy.

If you ever had Guillain-Barré Syndrome (a severe paralyzing illness, also called GBS). Some people with a history of GBS should not get this vaccine. Talk to your doctor about your GBS history.

If you are not feeling well. Talk to your doctor about your symptoms.

dr-paul-liebrecht“I always do everything I can to make sure my patients do well and return to full function as soon as possible. I noticed a strong correlation between home health and the reduction of post surgical complications. I prescribe home health through Southwest Virginia Home Health Care more now than ever before, and the rate of complications is lower than ever. I am very grateful that their services are available to our community.”
