what is a flu shot?

When flu season strikes, it is advisable to be prepared so that you or your loved ones don’t get sick. Bridgewater Primary Care & Cardiology offers easy and affordable protection against the flu virus. Since the flu virus changes every year, the vaccine is adapted to protect against the three strains that research has determined will cause the greatest illness. If you are properly vaccinated at the beginning of flu season, you can protect yourself from getting sick with the flu, or if you contract a strain of the flu that is not in the vaccine, you may greatly reduce your symptoms. Flu vaccinations also help to stop the spread of the flu, protecting those around you who may not have access to the vaccine or cannot be vaccinated for other medical reasons. Contact our West Bridgewater, MA office to schedule your flu shot today.

What to Expect from a Flu Shot

Before the flu shot can be administered, our primary care team will talk to you to determine if you should receive the vaccine based on your medical history and current health condition. When the appropriate flu vaccine is approved and selected, the injection site will be sterilized with alcohol before the shot is administered with a fine needle. After receiving a flu shot, patients may notice some minor side effects for 1 – 2 days, including a low-grade fever or body aches, as well as redness, soreness, or swelling at the injection site. If you experience any serious concerns or symptoms after your flu shot, please contact our office or go to your nearest hospital.

I am extremely happy with the treatment provided by Dr. Terzian and office staff. They are very professional and pleasant with patients.

About Us
Are flu shots and immunizations safe for individuals with chronic health conditions?

Flu shots and immunizations are generally safe for individuals with chronic health conditions, and at Bridgewater Primary Care & Cardiology, our medical team is adept at assessing and managing these cases. Our healthcare professionals review each patient's medical history to determine the suitability of specific vaccines. They take extra precautions to monitor for any potential side effects or interactions with existing medications. Additionally, they provide personalized guidance on how to best prepare for the vaccination process.

Severe reactions to flu shots and immunizations are rare, but Bridgewater Primary Care & Cardiology is prepared to address them if they occur. If you experience any unexpected symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, swelling, or a high fever, you should seek immediate medical attention. Our medical professionals advise patients to stay for a short observation period after receiving a vaccine, which allows us to monitor for immediate reactions. In case a reaction happens later, patients are encouraged to contact the clinic for guidance. The medical team can provide advice on whether to seek emergency care or how to manage milder symptoms at home.
