It’s that time of year again
Flu season will be here soon so now is the time to get vaccinated. Influenza (flu) is a serious disease caused by a virus and it can make you feel miserable! Fever, cough, shaking chills, body aches, and extreme weakness are common symptoms. You can catch the flu from people who cough, sneeze, or even just talk around you. It is very contagious!
Flu is dangerous
Tragically, each year, infants, children, teens, and adults die from the flu. The virus is very unpredictable so no one knows how deadly it will be each year. Even if you have a mild case of the flu, you can still pass it on to your friends, family, and coworkers who could get very sick or even die. The flu is most dangerous for people with health conditions like heart and lung disease, the very young and very old, and pregnant women. But anyone can become seriously sick from influenza – even young, healthy people.
How can you protect yourself and your loved ones?
Vaccination is the best way to prevent the flu. Everyone age 6 months and older should get their flu shot every year. Getting vaccinated not only protects you, it also protects the people around you. When you get vaccinated, you are helping to protect babies who are too young to get their shots. Also, remember these other tips to keep yourself and your loved ones healthy this flu season:
