It’s Not Too Late to Get Your Flu Shot!

man with fluTo flu or not to flu…that is the question! While many people still question whether or not to get a flu shot each year, it is still one of the safest and most effective ways to prevent the flu. It is not yet possible to completely eliminate the risk of getting the flu, but getting vaccinated does help greatly reduce this risk for you and your family.

Each year the flu vaccine is engineered to help your body develop antibodies to several strains of the flu virus. These antibodies help protect your body against infections. The flu virus can spread very easily. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), you can catch the flu from anyone within six-feet of you who may be infected. AND the flu can be spread anywhere from one day before a person starts seeing symptoms up to seven days after a person becomes sick! There is no way to know if the people around you are carrying the flu virus which may infect you and your loved ones.

While some cases of the flu might be mild others can be severe with symptoms ranging from a low-grade fever to life-threatening pneumonia. Those who are most at risk for complications of influenza include:

  • Pregnant women
  • Babies under six-months old
  • Young children
  • People with chronic health conditions such as asthma, diabetes or heart problems

Getting the flu shot, not only protects you and your family, it can also protect the most vulnerable people in our community.

Washing your hands is the second most effective way to protect yourself against the flu. Make handwashing a priority this flu season. Here is a video you can use to teach your children to wash their hands correctly.
