As we welcome the new fall-winter season, it’s inevitable that vaccinations, particularly flu shots, become a topic of discussion for many. This 2023-2024 season introduces us to new options, including the first-ever respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) vaccine and the novel COVID-19 booster 

Staying informed about these significant developments is crucial in helping you make the right vaccination choices and ensuring the safety of our community during this period. 

Your Choices: Flu Shots, RSV Vaccines, and COVID-19 Vaccines and Boosters

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that this is the inaugural fall and winter virus season, where vaccines for the three most prevalent viruses – COVID-19, RSV, and the flu – are available. These are often associated with high rates of hospitalizations and fatalities.  

Opting for these vaccinations, while a personal decision, is a responsible step towards protecting your health and those around you. The CDC also recommends who should receive these vaccinations or boosters tailored to individual needs. 

Understanding Your Vaccination Options

We all must educate ourselves on the various vaccinations available this season. While we administer most flu vaccines, currently, we do not offer RSV Vaccinations, COVID-19 Vaccinations, or Boosters.  

However, we can provide information on local resources like school districts, employers, and retail pharmacies that do offer these services. Please note that due to manufacturing concerns, Flublok® Quadrivalent (Influenza Vaccine) may not be readily available, but this will not disrupt general flu vaccination. 

The Importance of Vaccination

Annual flu vaccination is a fundamental aspect of preventive healthcare. With the vaccine composition changing annually to combat the prevailing virus, it’s crucial to stay updated.  

We urge everyone to protect themselves and their community by getting flu shots. Doing so can minimize the risk of illness, avoiding unnecessary time off from work or missing cherished moments with loved ones. 

In line with the Millennium spirit, we care about the well-being of our patients and communities. We advocate for vaccinations not only for individual health but for the collective health of our society.  

Secure a healthier future by getting vaccinated today. After all, we serve as your gateway to a healthier life.
