With flu season approaching and ongoing COVID-19 exposures, it is more important than ever to do what you can to help protect yourself against the flu, and that means getting an annual preventative flu vaccine. 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 from influenza. It’s best to be vaccinated before the flu begins spreading in your community. September and October are generally good times to be vaccinated against flu. Ideally, everyone should be vaccinated by the end of October. However, even if you cannot get vaccinated until November or later, vaccination is still recommended because flu most commonly peaks in February, and significant activity can continue into May. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body that protects against flu, so we encourage you to visit your Community Care Physicians’ office to get vaccinated early in the fall before flu season begins. However, vaccinations can still be given throughout the flu season.


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, and our Urgent Care Center of Latham. For the safety of our staff and other patients, please call us to cancel and do not come to your scheduled appointment if you have COVID symptoms. We ask that you only bring a visitor with you if medically necessary, and if you do have anyone else with you, they need to be symptom-free and masked. 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,  and in some cases, you can use the practice online scheduling feature to book your appointment. We don’t want a flu outbreak, especially during these Covid times. Schedule your flu vaccine today!
