What is Flu Vaccine?
Influenza (flu) vaccines (often called “flu shots”) are vaccines that protect against the four influenza viruses that research indicates are most common during this season.
Influenza is a common infectious condition that can have serious, sometimes fatal, complications. Even previously healthy individuals can get this infection, and can spread the disease to other people, leading to unwanted hospitalizations and even death. Flu symptoms include stuffy nose, headaches, sore throats, high fever, cough, fatigue as well as body aches and pains. Getting an annual flu shot is a simple, effective way to reduce the risk of acquiring and transmitting the influenza virus. Individuals who receive influenza immunization are less likely to require medical treatment by a specialist or a health provider.
