Cotton-O'Neil Sets Flu Shot Clinics

The following is from Stormont-Vail HealthCare:

Cotton-O’Neil Clinic, a division of Stormont-Vail HealthCare, will begin the second tier of 2011 Seasonal Flu Shot Clinics with a variety of walk-in clinics beginning Tuesday, Oct. 4 and running through Thursday, Oct. 20. The flu shot clinic is held every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday during this time period. For the convenience of every Cotton-O’Neil patient, we have added a number of evening flu shot clinics.

All Cotton-O’Neil Clinic physicians and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that you and your family get an annual flu vaccination as soon as it becomes available in your community that includes anyone ages 6 months and older.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the 2011-12 flu vaccine will protect against the three influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during the season. The vaccination is designed to last for an entire year and takes up to two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body to provide protection against the flu virus. To properly prepare for the flu season, it is recommended that people ages 6 months and older consider having the flu vaccination before the flu season begins.
