The fall season is accompanied with so many beautiful things- cooler weather, leaves changing, pumpkins, and holiday gatherings with family and friends. However, it is also that time of year when influenza A and B begin to lurk in the shadows.

Fall season is Flu season

We wanted to remind you that it's time to get your flu shot and help protect yourself and others during this fall and winter season. Below is the recommendation from our vaccine expert- Dr. Cassandra Calabrese- and a few helpful links from the CDC on the Flu and Flu Vaccine.

If you have any questions about your medical condition and whether the flu shot is for you, please seek additional advice from your healthcare provider.

Dr. Cassandra Calabrese

We recommend that patients get their flu shot by early October. Patients can receive the flu shot and COVID vaccine at the same time, whether given the standard or high-dose flu shot. The high-dose flu shot is approved for people age 65 and older.
