Millions around the world contract Influenza (also known as “the flu”) each year. Influenza is a highly contagious virus that causes a variety of mild to severe symptoms. Though symptoms are often confused for the common cold, the flu is much more dangerous. Complications from the flu can even lead to hospitalization or death.
An influenza vaccine or “flu shot” is your highest defense against the flu. New vaccines are released annually because the influenza strain changes every year. It’s highly suggested that everyone receives at the least one flu vaccine each year to protect themselves, especially high-risk individuals such as children and senior citizens over the age of 65.
