2017-2018 Flu Clinics


It is flu season—and we want to make it easy for you to get vaccinated! It is recommended that everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccination every season, and it’s particularly important for people who are at a high risk of serious complications for influenza. The exact timing of flu seasons can vary, but influenza activity often begins to increase in October. Most of the time flu activity peaks between December and February, although activity can last as late as May. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body that protect against flu, so we encourage you to visit your Community Care Physicians’ office to get vaccinated early in fall, before flu season begins. However, vaccinations can still be given throughout the flu season.

FluMist, the nasal spray influenza vaccine, will not be available during the 2017-18 season.


Flu Vaccine


Many practices within Community Care Physicians offer the flu vaccine to patients. Vaccines are available at our primary care offices, Capital Region Women’s Care, Upstate Hematology, and many of our Urgent Care Centers. If you are a patient at these offices, ask at your next appointment if you should get the vaccine. You can also call your Community Care office to schedule a visit specifically for the flu vaccine.
