Flu Vaccinations From HealthSmart Vaccines Keep Everyone Safe, Chantilly, Virginia

Even though flu season is just around the corner, many people put off getting a vaccine until it's too late. Not only does taking your chances with the flu put you at risk of serious illness, but it also impacts the people around you. For parents of newborns, those who care for the elderly, and immunocompromised people, the consequences of contracting influenza can be severe. To help protect you and your family, HealthSmart Vaccines offers flu shots and clinics to residents throughout Chantilly, VA.

The flu virus is spread by an infected person sneezing and coughing, expelling tiny droplets into the air, onto surfaces, and into their hands. You can contract the flu just by touching a doorknob or shaking hands and start showing symptoms within just a few days. These symptoms include aches, a dry cough, headaches, and fever. The flu can even lead to pneumonia in some cases, which is not only incredibly painful but also potentially fatal for vulnerable members of the population.

Luckily, this extremely disruptive disease is easy to prevent with vaccinations from HealthSmart Vaccines. Getting a flu shot is very inexpensive and easy, especially when compared to the discomfort and risk associated with developing influenza. They'll even come to your place of work, offering immunization and protection for you and everyone you come into contact with.

HealthSmart Vaccines offers a wide range of vaccines and travel insurance, so visit their website to learn more or call (703) 961-0733 to get more information and schedule a flu clinic today.
