Recently I posted about the importance of flu shots for pregnant women. Flu shots are a big deal, protecting not only your health, but the health of your unborn baby as well. Plus, recent studies show that pregnant women are more likely than other demographics to get the flu and to develop complications due to the flu. One reason many women fail to get a flu shot is because they may not be able to find a clinic. That's not a great excuse anymore though. Late last month, Maxim Health Systems (MHS) announced that they've got more than 25,000 flu shot clinics nationwide open for business. Maxim's flu vaccine program provides flu shot clinics at convenient retail locations, such as pharmacies, supermarkets and other public venues. Steve Pellito, National Director of Wellness Services for Maxim Health Systems, notes, "Flu season is here and the CDC has issued a universal recommendation that everyone over six months of age get vaccinated... Influenza is a serious and sometimes deadly illness that can be easily prevented, and we encourage everyone to protect themselves and their families this year by getting their flu shot." Maxim Health System's website offers an online flu clinic locater tool that can help you find a flu shot cliic near you. You can search via your local zip code and a flu clinic will pop up, offering you the address, driving directions, dates, and times for flu shots at local clinics. You can also access the flu clinic locator via your mobile device at m.findaflushot.com or find a convenient clinic location by phone at 877-962-9358. As always, your midwife or doctor can help you find a flu shot clinic as well.
