Top 10 flu shots near Las Cruces, NMBook telemedicine visits in New Mexico
Went in for my ankle. First one there so no real wait. Have no complaints with one exception - the wickedly awful soft brace I was sent home with. That lace up stuff with a swollen, hurt to touch, and, everything else, ankle, does not work and causes even more pain. You can have it back! Other than that, no complaints.
Everyone who assisted me was great, the guy at the front desk, awesome! the wait time not so much
I have been nursing a rhinitis, sinusitis infection since March 9. It turned into ear prob and from 29Apr to 10 May I have slept 2hrs nightly. Horrific screech white noise in ears, I thought I was heading to the Promiaed Land. THANKS TO GOD I saw Ms Christina Hinojos and her assistant, I think Jennifer, and they are superb professionals. THEY LISTEN. I felt ALIVE and the noise from ears due to infected sinuses is dissipating. I will drive from the Lower Valley to this clinic from now on. WORTH the time, feeling better and ability to sleep. Thank you!

Is a flu shot necessary?
Everyone 6 months or older should get vaccinated for the flu every year. Influenza, or the flu, is a serious virus and infection that hospitalizes and kills thousands of people annually. And it is constantly changing. The flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and your family from contracting the virus.
Do I need to get a flu shot every year?
Flu vaccines are needed annually, primarily for two reasons. First, the flu virus is constantly evolving, meaning the virus you received a vaccine for last year is unique from the virus in the upcoming season. As such, the vaccine itself needs to be different. Second, the vaccine itself wears off and your immune system’s response to the flu virus decreases over time. Unless you receive the vaccine every year, you will lack necessary immunity.
When should I get a flu shot?
Each year is a little different, but flu season generally starts as early as September. Getting a flu shot early in the season - August to October - gives your buddy the best opportunity to build up immunity to the virus as it does take roughly two weeks for the vaccine to protect you against infection. Of course, if you are unable to get the flu shot early, getting a flu shot later still helps as the virus could last through May.
How effective is the flu shot?
Each year, the CDC and other organizations conduct studies to determine the effectiveness of the flu vaccine against that years flu virus. According to the CDC, recent studies show that flu vaccination reduces the risk of flu illness by between 40% and 60%. Of course, there are multiple types and strands of the flu virus including influenza B and influenza A(H1N1), as well as influenza A(H3N2). Generally speaking, flu shots tend to work better against influenza types A & B.
How long does a flu shot last?
The flu vaccine lasts for one flu season as the virus constantly evolves and each year the vaccine is produced to specifically protect against the strand(s) that are prevalent in the upcoming flu season.
How much does a flu shot cost?
Depending on where you get your flu vaccine, what type of vaccine you are getting, and whether or not you are insured, flu shot costs vary. Generally speaking, however, flu shots can cost between $0 and $50, sometimes more.
