What is the flu shot?

The flu shot or flu vaccine is an injection that offers protection against three or four of the most common strains of influenza during the upcoming flu season.

Influenza is a family of highly contagious viruses that cause the flu, which is a disease that affects the respiratory system. Though flu symptoms range from mild to severe, in some cases, the infection may lead to respiratory failure or death.

The flu shot helps your body build-up antibodies against the virus. Though it may not prevent you from catching the flu virus and getting sick, your annual flu shot may lessen the severity of your symptoms and the duration of your infection. 

Who needs the flu shot?

In general, everyone aged six months and older needs the flu shot. It’s especially important for people at risk of developing serious health complications from an infection, including:

  • Older adults
  • Young children
  • Pregnant women
  • People with chronic health conditions (e.g., asthma, diabetes, cancer)

Though most people benefit from getting the flu shot, it may not be recommended if you have an egg allergy or had a bad reaction to a previous flu shot. 

Your provider determines if you’re not a good candidate for the flu shot and can talk to you about other ways you can protect yourself from getting sick. 

When should I get the flu shot?

In the United States, flu season begins in October and typically lasts through March. It takes your body about two weeks to build up immunity against the flu. You should get your flu shot before the start of the flu season. 

It’s recommended that you get your flu shot before the end of October, so you get the most protection. However, you may still benefit from the vaccination even if you wait until February or later to get it. 

Will the flu shot make me sick?

You may experience some side effects after getting the flu shot. In most cases, the side effects include pain, swelling, and warmth at the site of the injection. 

However, some people may also experience headaches, muscle aches, or a mild fever after their injection. These symptoms indicate your body is building up the antibodies needed to help you fight off the influenza virus.

It’s more important than ever that you take the necessary steps to protect yourself from getting the flu. Call Complete Health & Wellness, or book your flu shot online today.

Care You Can Trust

What We Offer

Complete Health & Wellness serves the residents of Missouri City, TX and the surrounding area, and specializes in treating many different conditions. Complete Health & Wellness focuses on every aspect of their patients’ healthcare. They understand that it is important to treat the entire person and that many physical conditions have nutritional and hormonal etiologies. Complete Health & Wellness’s primary provider is Dr. Fredrick Brown who is a fellowship trained in sports medicine and has well over a decade of experience.

When treating a patient, the signs and symptoms that are observed often point to the underlying root cause. Finding that cause using state-of-the-art diagnostic tools is the key to being able to develop an effective treatment plan. Once the etiology has been determined, a proper wellness treatment plan can be implemented. If a chronic condition is present, the doctor will be able to find a way to correct the underlying problem. By maximizing natural interventions and minimizing pharmaceutical drugs, both successful treatment can be obtained, combined with quality-of-life improvements, without causing drug side effects that are sometimes as unpleasant as the condition. This method of care is often referred to as ‘functional medicine’ or ‘integrative medicine’, which has proven superior to the confines and limitations of conventional care.

DOUG S.

I came to the clinic already knowing that I had testosterone levels at the very bottom of the acceptable limits for men. After consulting with Dr. Brown and going through his questions he picked up on several things that I considered was just a part of aging. Those things turned out to be not part of aging but the Thyroid not functioning as well as it should. After doing extensive blood work and getting real world information I am on a path to feeling great and being active again.

Doctor Brown is an amazing doctor. He was able to give me answers to fix my health that other doctors had no clue what to do. He is very personable and genuinely cares about his patients. The staff is amazing as well very personable and make you feel welcome. If I could give 100 stars I would.

TINA B.

I have been a patient of Dr. Frederick Brown’s for several years. After my first visit I remember telling my girlfriend that I felt like I hit the jackpot in finding such a caring & compassionate doctor. The individualized care and treatment is like nothing I’ve ever found with previous doctors. His staff also reflect his personal care. I am always telling anyone who is dealing with menopause to go see Dr. Brown and try the Biote identical injectable pellet. It is hands down the only way to deal with pre-menopause & menopause. It has changed my life for the better!

KELECHI R.

Dr. Brown’s “Kit Glove” approach to my several years of lower back pain which has severely affected my fast paced lifestyle has been quite commendable. With a driven personality to “never quit”, it’s quite rare to find a Medical practitioner that adopts the same mindset. His staff has been quite a gem as well. I look forward to continuing on the treatments until we get to a resolve.

Dr. Brown provides excellent care with the support of a first class staff which succeeds in making customer service a priority. I’ve been a patient for years and have enjoyed interacting with everyone. Their office is beautiful and has the very relaxing “feel” of a high-end spa. Dr. Brown, along with Maria and Livy especially, have been very accommodating and genuinely concerned about offering the best care possible to keep me feeling and looking my very best!
