Safeguard To You And Your Children Against Health Conditions

Immunizations prompt the body to build immunity against certain diseases or illnesses. A vaccine is a minuscule amount of the weakened form of a virus or a bacteria. When the patient is immunized, they are exposed to this weakened form in a controlled setting. This causes the immune system to respond and to create antibodies. If the patient is exposed to the illness, later on, their body will have the immunity to fight it off. Immunizations are commonly administered via injection in a doctor's office.

Seniors' Health


Get Your Flu Shot Today

The flu, also called influenza, is a respiratory infection caused by viruses. Sometimes it causes mild illnesses, but in certain cases it can be serious or even deadly, especially for certain groups of people, such as seniors, newborn babies, and people with chronic illnesses.

Some of the symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Cough and sore throat
  • Muscle and/or body aches
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Runny or stuffy nose

In more serious cases, the flu can lead to bronchitis, sinus infection, and pneumonia and it can exacerbate certain health conditions, such as asthma.

Prevention is Key

The influenza seasons and severity are unpredictable. However, what we do know is that the flu shot is the most important measure available to protect Canadians against influenza and its potentially life-threatening complications.

When Is The Best Time to Get The Flu Shot?

The flu is unpredictable, but it typically thrives in the colder months. That’s why the CDC recommends getting the vaccination by the end of October. This is because it can take 2-4 weeks for the vaccine to become effective.

Haven’t had your flu shot yet? It’s never too late!

Even if you didn’t manage to get your flu shot by the end of October, getting one now is still beneficial for your health. As long as flu viruses are circulating, it’s never too late to get vaccinated!

The doctors at our Calgary medical clinic are able to provide flu shots, which are recommended for most patients over the age of 6 months.
