Novartis Vaccines Partners With RediClinic for Holiday Vaccination Clinic, Making Influenza Vaccination Convenient for Shoppers
Date:11/13/2007

ient influenza vaccination clinic at Barton Creek Square during the holiday season," said George Walker, Executive Vice President, RediClinic Services. "We would like to remind our residents that an annual influenza vaccination helps to prevent influenza from spreading throughout the community. In essence, your decision to get vaccinated or not goes well beyond you - it also affects the many lives you touch."

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), though the influenza season varies from year to year, it can last as late as May. In Austin, last year the influenza season peaked between late January and mid March. This is why receiving a vaccination in December, or even later, can still be beneficial.

Influenza is a contagious disease that can lead to serious complications, hospitalization or even death. For those who have not already been vaccinated, getting an influenza vaccination now is especially important, because, during the holiday season, people gather with their loved ones. Most healthy adults can spread the influenza virus beginning one day before they feel sick and usually continue to be contagious for about five days after, which means the virus can spread to close contacts, such as loved ones and co-workers. In fact, each year more than 200,000 people in the United States (US) are hospitalized and an average of about 36,000 die from influenza and its complications. It is important for Austin residents to get vaccinated, especially as influenza remains a risk well beyond the holiday shopping season.

In an effort to help protect Austin residents and their loved ones against influenza, RediClinic is encouraging residents who have not yet been vaccinated for the 2007-2008 influenza season to visit Barton Creek Square this holiday shopping season to receive a vaccination. Residents who are nine years and older can be vaccinated at this particular clinic.
