As the world continues to minimize the effects of the Coronavirus, many have speculated on what the “new normal” will become. One theory is that the focus on preventative health will not end when the virus is over. The reasoning behind the theory is that people will think, “If I can avoid getting COVID-19, maybe I can do a better job avoiding the common cold, the stomach flu, and influenza.”
With those thoughts in mind, many people may be seeking out the flu shot for the first time. Or, they may have to find a new way to get a flu shot because their employer isn’t offering their annual flu clinic due to Coronavirus concerns.
Visiting your physician is certainly an option, especially if you have other reasons to visit. However, if you don’t want to set up an appointment or are looking to avoid the clinic setting, your community pharmacy is a great place to go.
If you are planning to get a flu shot this fall or winter, your Sterling Pharmacy team would be happy to help! For a speedier process at the pharmacy, you can download, print, and fill out the flu consent form before your visit.
The safety of our patients and employees is our top concern. We’ve implemented every safety measure suggested by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the state to keep our stores clean and healthy.
We look forward to seeing you on your next visit to Sterling.
