What to Know About Flu Vaccinations
WHY VACCINATE AGAINST THE FLU?
The common flu, or Influenza, is a serious disease affecting millions every year. This illness is tricky because it is constantly changing. Influenza is a highly contagious viral infection that can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death.
Flu season typically peaks during the month of October and can continue until may. Influenza does not affect the young and elderly, but even healthy people can spread the disease to those susceptible to infection. You may be able to pass on flu to someone else before you know you are sick, as well as while you are sick. The greatest prevention against Influenza is to receive an annual flu vaccination.
