Apple Discount Drugs Bringing Flu Shots to Local Businesses
Fruitland – September, 2013– Local businesses have the opportunity to provide convenience to their employees by scheduling an on-site flu shot clinic with Apple Discount Drugs. Apple is prepared to bring flu shots to local businesses to help keep employees healthy and prevent them from getting sick and having to miss time on the job.
“We understand people are very busy between work, family and all the other curve balls life throws their way,” said Jeff Sherr, President, Apple Discount Drugs. “We want to make it easier for people to stay healthy. By offering flu shots to people while they are already at work, you are providing them with the convenience of not having to worry about scheduling time off to get their annual flu shot. It is our hope that more people will take advantage of this opportunity to stay healthy inside and outside of work.”
Flu seasons can be very unpredictable and even though epidemics of flu happen every year, the timing, severity, and length of the season varies from one year to another. Flu activity often peaks in January or February, but can begin as early as October and continue to occur as late as May. Flu viruses are constantly changing so it’s not unusual for new flu virus strains to appear each year.
While there are many different flu viruses, the flu vaccine is designed to protect against the three main flu strains that research indicates will cause the most illness during the flu season. Getting the flu vaccine as soon as it becomes available each year is important and the protection you get from vaccination will last throughout the flu season.
