Get Your Flu Shot!
The best way to avoid the flu, and its possible complications, is to get the annual flu vaccine! The strain of flu that is prevalent each year can vary, and the body’s immunities deteriorate over time, so it is important to get the shot yearly. The flu shot will not give you the flu, though some people can have minor reactions to it. You can still potentially get the flu even if you get the shot as it doesn’t protect you against every strain, but it can still help lessen the effects of flu symptoms even if you do get the flu. Young children, the elderly, and people with chronic conditions should get the flu shot as the flu can be potentially dangerous for them. They are more in danger of developing flu-related complications such as pneumonia, bronchitis, and sinus or ear infections.
Getting vaccinated yourself may also protect people around you, including those who are more vulnerable to serious flu illness, like babies and young children, older people, and people with certain chronic health conditions.
