How Does the Flu Vaccination Work?
Your average Burlington flu vaccine is considered a regular flu shot which can be administered to anyone age 6 months or older. The flu shot contains killed influenza virus and once it is injected into your system your body will begin to develop antibodies to the flu about two weeks later. After the two week period if you come into contact with the flu then the antibodies you developed from your flu shot will get to work fighting off the virus so that you will not have to suffer from it. Getting your Burlington flu vaccination at Alamance Family Practice is the smart choice to prevent the flu from affecting you this year. Schedule your appointment today to let us handle your flu shot!
