    Subject: It’s important to get your flu shot

    Flu season is here. Get your flu shot before the end of October to protect your health for the season, which peaks between December and February, and begins to wind down in May. If you miss October, get your shot as soon as you can, so you’re protected for the rest of the season. With fewer people social distancing and taking COVID-19 precautions, cases of the flu may spike this season.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends anyone age 6 months or older get a flu shot. We can discuss if the flu shot is right for you.

    The flu shot can help reduce your risk of illness, hospitalization and death

    With the surge of Delta variant COVID-19 infections, it’s important to stay protected against flu complications. The flu and COVID-19 can each cause serious illness and be deadly. If you have both at the same time, the risk is greater. The best protection is to be vaccinated for both. The CDC says it’s okay to get vaccinated for the flu and COVID-19 at the same time.

    The flu shot is covered by most insurance plans, at no cost to you.

    Find more information about the 2021-2022 flu season and COVID-19 from the CDC.

    Your health and well-being are important. Call us today to schedule your flu shot.

Diabetes symptoms often go unnoticed

Many people don’t recognize they’re experiencing diabetes symptoms. Increased thirst, fatigue and extreme hunger are all symptoms of diabetes. These symptoms are easy to miss or blame on some other reason. For example, you may think you’re not getting enough sleep if you’re tired or not drinking enough water if you’re thirsty.
