Flu Shot Administration by a Direct Primary Care Doctor in Orlando, FL

Flu Shot Administration Orlando FLThe yearly spread of influenza is inevitable, but the timing, severity, and duration of the annual flu season are highly unpredictable. There are many different—and constantly evolving—flu viruses, which means there are brand-new ones to contend with every year. Based on extensive research studies, scientists formulate the seasonal flu vaccine to provide protection against the viruses that are predicted to be the most prevalent in the upcoming months. That’s why yearly flu shot administration is so important.

Of course, a flu shot will not provide complete protection against influenza. In fact, nothing can. However, the U.S. Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) maintain that an annual influenza vaccine is the most effective preventive measure that is currently available.

Preventing the Flu

In addition to seeing a medical professional annually for flu shot administration, here are some other ways to lower your risk of becoming sick with—and spreading—influenza:

  • Stay home when you aren’t feeling well — Take a few days off from work, school, and errands to allow your body time to rest and recover and avoid exposing others to your illness.
  • Shield your coughs and sneezes — Cover your mouth and nose with a clean tissue whenever you cough or sneeze, then place the used tissue in a wastebasket. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve instead of your hand.
  • Keep your hands clean — Wash your hands thoroughly and often to help prevent the spread of germs. If soap and warm water are not available, an alcohol-based hand sanitizer is the next best thing.
  • Keep your hands away from your face — Germs are easily spread after you touch a contaminated surface and then touch your eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Reduce germs in your surroundings — Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces, especially when someone is ill.
  • Maintain other healthy habits — Stay well-hydrated, exercise regularly, get sufficient sleep, and consume a nutritious diet.

“My husband and I were in search of a new physician when my neighbor mentioned that we should meet Dr Toni Muzzinigro who was a “Direct Primary Care” physician. We were not familiar with the term and were very intrigued. We made an initial appointment with her and learned so many things that we didn’t think existed anymore. Her main focus is on the patient and not the insurance companies! When she doesn’t have to worry about the bureaucracy and red tape of insurance companies, she has so much more time to listen to the patient and come up with a truly great level of care. The patient comes first and foremost. Our initial appointment was so thorough. She wanted to know every aspect of our past records. I felt like she really cared about us and her main goal was to keep us as healthy as possible. During our annual appointments, Dr. Muzzi schedules enough time to go over every concern you may have. Her explanations of test results are very thorough, and she is very knowledgeable of up to date medical breakthroughs. There have been some times during the year that we needed a doctor’s advice quickly. She is available to us basically 24/7. You can get in touch with her via phone, text, or video conferencing. Many things can be handled in a quick and timely manner. However, if there is a need to see her personally, getting in to see her doesn’t take weeks. Usually, you can make an appointment the very next day. How comforting is it to know that your doctor is always available to you and truly cares about your wellbeing! That is worth its weight in gold! Her staff are an added bonus! They run the office efficiently and take care of any other needs we may have. Another great advantage is that Dr. Muzzi has a network of specialists, labs, and resources available to us and at a discounted rate and free generic prescriptions. Personally, we like the fact that someone can help us navigate the medical system and direct us in the right direction. I simply can’t say enough. Dr. Muzzi has become our doctor as well as a good friend. She will always have our best interest at heart and her main goal is to provide the highest level of care. We are so thankful to have found Dr. Muzzi and Optimum Direct Care.”
