The Life Savers
Statement by Dr. Savage, DO, who is a board-certified, diplomat of the American Osteopathic Board of Family Physicians: “For those who know me, you know I love to talk about immunizations. That is because they are life savers. As medical providers, it is our duty to make recommendations to our patients on how to live long and healthy lives. Immunizations are one of the tools that help us achieve that goal. Currently, the top most common life-saving immunizations that are used in the United States are the flu and pneumonia vaccinations. Just about anyone can have access to the flu shot.”
Skepticisms about the Flu Vaccines & Solutions
- Fear of Needles: We have been very successful alleviating this fear as we use tiny needles that the patient barely feels.
- Fear of Side Effects & Reactions: About 3 out of 5 people can expect to get mild flu-like symptoms after receiving the vaccination. But think of it as your body is mounting a response to those flu particulates. It is preparing you to fight the sickness if you are ever to catch the real flu. In turn, you are less likely to be hospitalized, intubated on a ventilator, or decease.
