If you haven’t gotten your flu shot yet, we encourage you to do so! This is especially important if you are at high risk or in contact with high risk individuals such as babies, pregnant women, and the elderly. The flu shot is safe in pregnancy; if you are pregnant, check with our clinical staff to find out when in your pregnancy you should get your flu shot.

Prevention is key. Wash your hands often and avoid close contact with those who are sick if possible. If you do get sick, make sure to rest, stay home to prevent spreading the illness to others, and see your primary care doctor if necessary. If you are pregnant, please call our office right away if you develop flu symptoms to discuss possible treatment.
