Influenza or “the flu” is a worldwide epidemic that affects millions around the world annually. Influenza is a highly contagious virus that causes a variety of symptoms that can range from mild to severe. Though symptoms are often confused for the common cold, the flu is much more dangerous as complications can lead to hospitalization or even death.
An influenza vaccine, or “flu shot”, is your highest defense against the flu. New vaccines are released every year to help protect against that year’s strain of the flu virus. It’s highly suggested that everyone gets at least one flu vaccine each year, especially high-risk individuals like children and seniors 65+.
