Your First Stop for This Year’s Flu Season.
Most people are aware influenza, or the flu, is a respiratory illness that affects your body’s airways. However, many do not realize the flu can cause not only minor irritation but may evolve into severe illness and even lead to death.
The symptoms of the flu may include the following:
- fever or chills
- sore throat
- runny or stuffy nose
- muscle or body aches
- and further complications
Additionally, sometimes children may experience vomiting and diarrhea. And, you do not have to be running a fever to have the flu, as formerly believed.
Prepare Your Body
Palm Harbor Pharmacy knows many ways to protect and keep your body healthy during the flu season. We encourage all our Palm Harbor area neighbors to stop in for a chat with the pharmacy to discuss the most effective wellness options for flu season.
Here are some of the ways we can help:
Prevention Products for Flu Season
FLU SHOT & High Dose for Age 65+
The flu shot may not mean you never get sick, but it reduces the risk of severe illness and hospitalization due to the virus. Further complications are another reason to talk to your pharmacy or doctor about the flu shot.
Most insurance companies cover flu shots at no cost to patients.
Protect yourself and your family from the various strains of influenza by getting a flu shot every year.
