Get Your Flu Shot and MMR
Protect against COVID
You can obtain your flu vaccine at your local pharmacy. If you need a prescription, contact Dr. Nesbit to prescribe one for you at your local pharmacy.
There are different types of flu vaccines:
1. Obtain a quadravalent vaccine, never the trivalent (which has less coverage).
2. If available, ask for the subcutaneous vaccine which has higher immunoprotection. If it is not available get the IntraMuscular vaccine. I do not recommend the live intranasal vaccine for any age as it has both can cause mild illness and has not been shown to be effective for flu prevention in the last two years.
3. If you have thin arms or PRIOR rotator cuff damage/surgery, speak to Dr. Nesbit before getting your vaccine to prevent rare, but potentially permanent shoulder complication known as SIRVA.
4. If you have an egg allergy, ask for the egg free vaccine.
If you have not had an adult MMR, or it has been > 10 years, obtain a booster. There is some preliminary data from the NIH and International statistics that it MAY help cross protect against COVID-19.
All adults are recommended to have a booster regardless by CDC guidelines.

Patient comments about Dr.W. Hugh Nesbit, MD
I am truly blessed to have found a Dr. like Dr. Nesbit. I have never come across as thorough of a Dr. than he is. I have had a few health situations that have been hard to diagnose. Trust me when I say. He leaves no stone unturned. I read one review that says he wasn't looking her in the eyes. Unfortunately,she wasn't realizing she had a Doc. who was very intensely studying her medical situation. Time in a Dr's visit is very limited. So, he is the type of guy who will use every minute of your visit making sure he is on point and not miss a thing. Trust me. He doesn't miss a thing. I have never had a Dr. make me feel so proteced as he does. Also trust me. He also takes time for plenty of discussion. I never have left his office feeling that I haven't been100% educated on my situation. I am 54 years old and I have been through alot of Doc's in my life span. Trust me when I say, Dr.Nesbit is by far the best Doc. I have ever had .
