Flu vaccines began shipping in August. Your internist, pediatrician and some local health departments and pharmacies will offer flu vaccines this season. There is also a handy tool by the government at Flu.gov to help you locate community providers in your area.
The flu vaccine is appropriate for those patients 6-months or older.
Botox is an old medicine which has made a splash over the last several years for its rejuvenating powers. Botox works beautifully to reduce facial lines and wrinkles, but many patients, and some doctors, do not realize the drug’s use in treatments to reduce or eliminate pain. Botox and a competitor to Botox, Xeomin, can be used to treat certain pain syndromes: chronic migraines, Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), severe neck spasm, Blepharospasm (twitching of the eyelids), and herepetic neuralgia (shingles).
