Flu Shot Update

Turke & Thomashow's offices in Ann Arbor and Chelsea are ready for the flu: we have both the swine flu and seasonal flu vaccines available now.  The  H1N1, or "swine" flu, hit our area hard this fall; but the usual, "seasonal," flu has yet to come through.  It's important to know that the viruses that cause these influenzas are different.  Having had an H1N1 flu shot, or having had the H1N1 flu, will not offer protection against the seasonal flu.  Call our offices to make appointments.  Our nurses are ready and willing to get our patients immunized.
