Cold and Flu

Staying Healthy During Flu Season

Each year, between 9 and 35 million people come down with the flu. As a mutating virus, the flu can quickly spread through communities and result in severe complications. However, you can protect yourself and others by getting vaccinated.

Stop the Spread

There are a number of steps you can take to limit the spread of the flu virus. Always cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, and wash your hands frequently. It’s a good idea to regularly disinfect surfaces that you touch, including doorknobs, your cell phone, and your work area.

Flu Vaccine Appointments

The most important flu prevention measure is receiving the yearly vaccine. Schedule an appointment with your primary care physician to get the flu shot. We understand it’s another addition to your to-do list, so we’ve made it convenient for your schedule. Our doctors offer same and next-day appointments so you can get in and out with minimal wait.

Do I Really Need a Flu Shot?

The flu claims lives each year. Dr. Syed Raza, VP of Medical Operations at St. Luke’s Health–The Woodlands Hospital, explains how getting the flu vaccine can protect both yourself and others.
