3 ● Flu season is upon us which means it’s a very good time to dispel a lot of misinformation you may have about the virus and the vaccine its treatment and recovery. ● Let’s set the record straight: Nobody catches the flu from the flu vaccine. The vaccine cannot transmit the virus because it is made from an inactivated virus. ● What you are getting injected with is a ‘killed virus’. There are some proteins that are taken from the surface of the dead virus and these proteins prompt your immune system but they will not be enough to become the flu. ● Sometimes after getting the vaccine the site of the injection can become a little sore. Other times the patient may come down with a cold around the same time and mistakenly believe that it was caused by the vaccine. ● Talk to the doctors at your Urgent Care Clinic in Los Gatos so that they can ease your mind.

4 Symptoms You May Feel After Your Flu Shot One of the best things you can do to keep healthy during flu season is to go to your Best Urgent Care Center and get yourself and everyone in your family vaccinated. Symptoms you may feel after the flu shot: ● There are a small percentage of people who will feel soreness in the arm that got the shot. This may last a few hours to a day but it will go away. ● Some people may feel fatigued or even get a little headache. This is NOT the flu. Your Primary Care Physician will assure you that it’s just your body’s immune system reacting to the vaccine. This is nothing to worry about. ● You may have already had the virus if you were exposed to it from in infected person without realizing it. Your shot won’t reach full effectiveness until about 2- 3 weeks after the vaccination and your body needs time to adjust.
