Delaware County Medical Society Winter 2017 - 7

Protect Yourself, Your Family, and Your Community
We all know plenty of people who are at high-risk of
complications from influenza, including young children,
adults 65 and older, people in nursing homes and long-term
care facilities, pregnant women (and women up to two weeks
postpartum), and people with chronic diseases such as diabetes,
asthma, heart disease, cancer, and HIV/AIDS. By getting
everyone in your family vaccinated against the flu every year,
we not only protect ourselves but we also help reduce the
spread of the flu to vulnerable members of our communities.
Remember, it takes about two weeks after vaccination for
antibodies to develop in the body and provide protection
against flu, so get your vaccine as soon as possible. But
if you don't make it to your doctor or pharmacist before
the holiday season, you can still get vaccinated in January,
February or March to protect you and your loved ones
from flu that could continue circulating as late as May.
Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about getting the
flu vaccine for everyone over 6 months of age in
your family. And remember - if you get the vaccine
at your pharmacy, let your doctor know so he or
she can update your immunization record.
