Flu Vaccine

The flu is a very contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses, and at Vanguard Medical Group, we see hundreds of cases of the flu virus every year. The majority of these cases occur in patients who never received the flu vaccine, so we encourage you and your family to stay protected against the virus by getting vaccinated. The flu vaccine varies from season to season depending on the most prevalent flu strains. Vanguard Medical Group offers the most up-to-date flu vaccine to all our patients.
