Concentra utilizes the Flucelvax Quadrivalent flu vaccine, which protects against four virus strains, instead of just three. This vaccine is produced using cell-based technology for potentially greater vaccine effectiveness than traditional, egg-based vaccines.
The Flucelvax Quadrivalent flu vaccine contains inactivated virus so it cannot give you the flu.
Published research has described human behaviors concerning flu shots. Some top characteristics of people who decide to get a flu shot include:
- They care about protecting society, the community, and their work group.
- They are encouraged by their family, friends, and employers to get a flu shot.
- They are interested in protecting their health.
- Often they have gotten a flu vaccination in prior years but many decide to get a flu shot for the first time, especially after taking steps to improve their health in other ways.
Congratulations if you are generally healthy!
Supporting your immunity through a healthy diet and lifestyle can put you are a step ahead. But flu season is fickle. No one knows in advance how severe it will be or who will be most affected. Getting a flu shot is extra protection, even if you are generally healthy.
