Why Do I Need to Get a Flu Shot Every Year?

While many vaccinations offer protection for years or even a lifetime, some vaccines need to be administered regularly to keep your body’s defenses strong against certain illnesses. This regular vaccination schedule helps your body maintain the necessary level of antibodies to fight off sicknesses caused by germs that remain consistent over time. However, the flu vaccine is a special case.

Essentially, the flu virus changes quickly and can lead to new strains each year, which is why getting an annual flu shot is recommended. Because of these yearly changes, scientists develop a new flu vaccine that targets the most common flu strains expected for the upcoming flu season.

Here at Doctors Plus Urgent Care we administer flu shots to adults and children in a convenient, comfortable environment. We help ensure that your body has the antibodies needed to protect against the current year’s flu strains. Urgent care centers like ours in Concord offer easy access to the flu vaccine, helping you and your community stay healthy and prepared for flu season.
