Why should I get a flu shot?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that up to 25 percent of the American population is affected by the flu every year. This means that millions of people suffer the virus’s unpleasant symptoms each flu season, including muscle aches, body chills, fatigue, sore throat, congestion, and nausea.
A flu shot is the single best way to defend your health against the influenza virus and prevent its spread throughout the community. The vaccine works by triggering the development of antibodies that fight the flu and help keep you healthy. It is still possible to become sick even with a flu shot, but your symptoms will be much less severe than if you had not been vaccinated at all. Everyone is susceptible to the flu, but you should be particularly mindful to receive the flu vaccine if you:
- Are older than 65
- Are pregnant or have recently given birth
- Reside or work in a hospital, long-term care facility, or nursing home
- Have chronic pulmonary, cardiac, metabolic, or neurologic disorders
