Every year Influenza (the “flu”) affects nearly 5 – 20% of the United States population and results in nearly 200,000 hospitalizations per year due to flu-like complications. Since influenza is constantly changing, it is recommended that everyone over the age of 6 months receive an annual flu shot. By having an annual vaccination you greatly reduce the risk of contracting the virus and spreading it to others.

A vaccination provides crucial antibodies that protect your body from the flu virus and keep you healthy. Along with infants, individuals 65 years and older are more susceptible to the disease so it is highly recommended that you or a loved one receive the flu shot as fast as possible.

Keystone Ave and 10950 Pendleton Pike in Indianapolis. We’re open 7 days a week from 8am to 6pm to accommodate even the busiest of schedules.
