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.
Bridgewater Primary Care & Cardiology Reviews
I was pleasantly surprised with my visit. I don't know what I expected but the Doctor was very thorough and asked many questions, which I loved. He did seem concerned and wanted to cover all my concerns. The front desk staff was ok. Overall I had a great experience.
Dr. John has been my doctor for four plus years and he always provides the best care for whatever is it that I need. The visits are extremely accommodating and the in person appointments are always efficient and quick. Very clean and spacious office as well. The staff are always welcoming. Thank you so much for all that you do for me!!
Great provider. Listens to all concerns and orders necessary tests. Always punctual. And has a great bedside manner. Have been their patient for the past five years. Highly recommend.
He explained to my husband and myself what we were facing. Also, his personality and bedside manner was superb. Not worried about this procedure at this time. Just waiting to have it scheduled. Office staff up front were caring and polite. Just be glad when all is done and over.
Dr John has been my Cardiologist for many years. He never acts hurried to move me along. The care I have gotten is exceptional!
