As the first hints of winter hit us, it's time to prepare for the inevitable: flu season. No, not that one. We're talking about the other one: influenza. Yep, when it rains it pours. Life is really challenging these days, isn't it!
But yes: it's time to get your influenza shots for 2022 if you haven't already.
Influenza can spread rapidly in the colder months and can cause complications — pneumonia, meningitis and myocarditis — especially in at-risk groups. The most effective way of preventing the flu is getting an influenza vaccination, the composition of which is updated every year by the World Health Organization..
For 2022, United Family is now offering the influenza vaccine for ages 3 and up and all nationalities. You can make an appointment and purchase influenza vaccines in the following ways:
Shanghai United Family offers the influence vaccination at both their Puxi clinic in Hongqiao and their Pudong clinic in Jinqiao. Follow the steps below to book your appointment for adults and kids over 3 years of age.
