-- Rodriguez MD, a bilingual Lawrenceville clinic
in Gwinnett County, GA, is offering patients seasonal influenza (flu) shots. Available for $25 while supplies last, these vaccines will prevent against three common strains of flu.

"According to statements made by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this month, flu season has arrived early this year and is shaping up to be a bad one," explains Neville Street, the practice's Administrative Director. "In addition, CDC reports there have been high levels of flu activity in the south central and southeastern regions, including Georgia," says Street. The percentage of people who went to the doctor with influenza-like illness had reached the national baseline of 2.2 percent, the earliest that has happened in the regular flu season in nearly a decade.
"We are urging all our patients, who have not already done so, to get their flu shots now," shares Deborah Rodriguez, MD, one of the Lawrenceville Family Practice
's physicians. "The best way to avoid getting the flu is to get the shot," she adds. Each year about a quarter of the U.S. population gets the flu and approximately 36,000 people die each year from the flu.
