No disrespect to your past flings…

but the flu reminds us of a bad ex. (You know, the ultra-persistent kind who repeatedly texts you “wyd?”)

Every year, that nasty little bug comes crawling back into your life unwelcome and uninvited, begging you for Netflix and chills. The flu is annoying, relentless, and has *zero* respect for personal boundaries, so — why even entertain the creep anymore?

Say goodbye to the bug.

Just like you can unfollow, delete, and unsubscribe from your annoying ex, you can block the flu with a 5-minute flu shot.

Did you know?

For your best shot at prevention, get your flu vaccine before Halloween.

The CDC recommends getting vaccinated before the end of October. That’s because it can take two to four weeks for your body to develop antibodies to protect you against the virus.

Getting your flu shot before Halloween is the best way to prepare for peak flu season, which typically hits in February. Missed the window? A flu vaccine at any time of the year is still better than none at all.

Forget the flu with these FAQs.

Q: Which flu vaccine do we stock in clinics?
ZoomCare offers Afluria for adults and Flucelvax for children 6 months and older. Both are inactivated, single-use, pre-filled, 0.5 mL intramuscular injections.

Q: Do any of the vaccines contain mercury or latex?
No. The supply ZoomCare uses does NOT contain mercury, nor does it contain the preservative "thimerosal". Also, our supply does NOT contain latex in the syringe or stopper.

Q: Who should get vaccinated?
Sadly, no one is immune to the bug. Everyone 6 months of age and older should get the flu vaccine every season.

Q: How long does it take to work?
It takes 2-4 weeks for the antibodies to fully develop.

Q: How long does the flu shot last?
Immunity duration from the flu shot can vary. For most people it lasts for 6-8 months, but can last longer for some.

Q: Can I get the flu from the flu shot?
No. Afluria and Flucelvax influenza vaccines are "inactivated", meaning they are not live vaccines and it's impossible to “get” the flu from the flu shot.
