Think you know it all? Test your Flu IQ
Fighting the Flu begins with you! It only takes a few minutes to stop by and get a flu shot. PCMC/WCMC is able to offer flu shot vaccinations for ages 3 years old and up.
Please keep in mind that you should only get the flu shot when you are fever free and not exhibiting signs of a cold.
The CDC reports the following regarding the safety and effectiveness of the Quadrivalent vaccine: “Flu vaccines that protect against four flu viruses are made in the same way as the flu vaccines that have been around for years that protect against three flu viruses. The difference is the addition of another vaccine virus. Studies have shown that vaccines made to protect against four flu viruses have a safety profile similar to seasonal flu vaccines made to protect against three viruses, with similar—mostly mild—side effects. Hundreds of millions of people have safely gotten flu vaccines that protect against three flu viruses. Like all seasonal flu vaccines, vaccines that protect against four flu viruses will be monitored for their safety and effectiveness.”
