Wilmington, DE, December 09, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Doctors Express Wilmington, a walk-in medical care facility, is taking part in National Influenza Vaccination Week as designated by the US Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The company is offering seasonal influenza vaccines available through its location in the Fairfax Shopping Center.
To support National Influenza Week, Doctors Express Wilmington will offer the single-dose influenza vaccine, while supplies last. The 2012-13 single-dose vaccine covers the seasonal flu and provides the best defense against contracting the flu virus.
“Flu season typically ramps up in December and can extend into May of the following year. Influenza outbreaks are hard to predict and can easily spread within the community,” said Ed Murphy, President of Urgent Care Solutions LLC and Business Manager of Doctors Express Wilmington. “As we move through the holiday season, frequent travel and social gatherings tend to increase the risk of spreading and catching flu germs. While we’ve already had a number of our patients take advantage of our flu vaccine program, the CDC reports that the vast majority of Americans have not yet gotten their flu shot this season.”
Flu Shots are available at Doctors Express Wilmington in the Fairfax Shopping Center to patients four years of age and older. No appointment is necessary and walk-ins are welcome. In addition to influenza vaccines, the facility also offers health care services for a wide range of illnesses and injuries, including colds, seasonal allergies, skin and urinary inflections, breaks and sprains, and many other conditions.
