Uptown Pharmacy to aid people by hosting the "Free Flu Shots" event to restrict the spread of Influenza in the community.

Free Flu Shots

The flu season is right round the corner and the risk of getting caught by influenza is getting higher. We need to get well equipped with all the necessary measures before it begins to harbor its effects on us. Already with the sudden outbreak of COVID 19, the mortality rate is also increasing, and it is leaving a huge impact on our lives. Hence it has become even more relevant to keep oneself immune from any of disease. CDC estimates that influenza was associated with more than 35.5 million illnesses, more than 16.5 million medical visits, 490,600 hospitalizations, and 34,200 deaths during the 2018–2019 flu season. However, due to the novel COVID-19 pandemic, these numbers may be higher than normal for this time of year and hence it has even become more important to get the flu shot to safeguard your survival than ever before.

Uptown Pharmacy is taking a great initiative to rescue and immune our bodies from the Influenza by hosting a "Free Flu Shot" event on Sunday, August 30th from 8:00 AM EST to 12:00 PM EST at First Presbyterian Church of Flint 746 Saginaw St. Flint, Michigan. Flu Shot can help to protect people who are at greater risk of getting seriously ill from flu, like adults, people with chronic health conditions, and young children. It can make your illness milder if you do get sick and can reduce the risk of more serious flu outcomes, like hospitalizations and deaths. “Protecting yourself from the flu also protects the people around you who are more vulnerable to serious flu illness. The flu vaccine is recommended for everyone from the age of six months and older. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for your body to develop protection against the flu. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also recommends people to get inject able flu shots” as said by Daniel Omara, Pharm D. at Uptown Pharmacy.

Uptown pharmacy has been contributing towards the healthcare of the people with the major objective of spreading health care awareness among the individuals in the society. With this objective, it is hosting a Free Flu Shot event that focuses on giving flu shots absolutely free of cost to the individuals, as it sees an annual flu vaccination, a mode of spreading health care awareness among the people. "Since Precaution is better than Cure. We are offering you with precaution, it's better to take it than later on looking for its cure". Omara added. “We also believe that in today's era it's really important for humans to be health cautious and health-oriented. Nobody should compromise on taking proper precautions for the sake of yourself and your surroundings.”
