Flu - Influenza

Avoid the flu blues this season

Flu season is upon us and chances are you or someone in your family will be affected. This year, avoid the chills, cough, stuffy nose, fever, headaches, sore throat and muscle aches by getting a flu shot.

Stop by your neighborhood Norton Immediate Care Center for your flu shot. Our highly trained physicians are here for your cold and flu needs as well as for care of minor illnesses and injuries.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests, the most effective way to protect yourself from the virus is to get vaccinated.

Have questions about getting the flu shot while pregnant? 

Tips to avoid flu viruses

  • Get a flu shot this year.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, and spend at least 20 seconds scrubbing them.
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.

If you get the flu, avoid spreading it to others by:

  • Covering your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • Staying home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities.
  • Limiting contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them.

For your cold and flu season needs or for other minor illnesses or injuries, stop by your neighborhood Norton Immediate Care Center.
Most open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week. And, best of all, no appointment is needed.
