Story Medical Clinics Offering Annual Flu Shot
Vaccine is available in Nevada and Maxwell
Story Medical Clinics have received a supply of flu vaccine and you are encouraged – especially if you fall into a high-risk category – to schedule an appointment to get your shot as soon as possible.
Flu season typically peaks between December and February, but significant activity can occur earlier than that. The CDC recommends an annual flu vaccine for everyone 6 months and older. Those falling in high-risk categories include young children, pregnant women, people 65 and older, and people with certain medical conditions, like asthma, diabetes or heart disease.
“Those who care for anyone at high risk, including babies younger than six months, should also make it a priority to get a flu shot,” says Dr. Audra Poterucha of Story Medical Clinic - Nevada. “Getting the flu vaccine is simple, and it’s the most important thing you can do to protect yourself and your family from the flu.”
The vaccine is available at Story Medical Clinics in Nevada and Maxwell. Appointments are available Monday through Saturday in Nevada and Monday through Friday in Maxwell during regular business hours.
For more information or to schedule an appointment call the Nevada Clinic at (515) 382-5413 or the Maxwell Clinic at (515) 387-8815.
