Why You Need to Get Your Flu Shot

Influenza is a serious disease that can lead to serious illness and sometimes even death. 

The influenza virus, more commonly referred to as the flu, is different every year not only because of the different kinds of flu viruses that exist, but also because of the mutations it goes through. So that means that even healthy people can get very sick and spread the virus to others. During the recent flu seasons, between 80 to 90 percent of all flu-related deaths occurred in people 65 years and older. Even though you can get the flu at any time, fall is the time when the flu is circulating the U.S. at higher levels in the U.S. population. The flu vaccine is your best chance at avoiding this sickness.

How do flu vaccines work?

Flu vaccines are composed of weakened or dead strand of virus which scientists believe to be the most predominant virus of the season. Your antibodies are then able to kill the weakened viruses and form an immunity against this virus in the future.

Who should get vaccinated?

Unfortunately, not everyone is able to get vaccinated because of health and medical reasons, which leaves them vulnerable to the virus. This means that it’s every healthy person’s moral responsibility to get vaccinated to provide a kind of shield around those whose immune systems are compromised.

Do I have to get the flu vaccine every year?

Because of the flu’s ability to mutate, it is recommended that you get the flu vaccine every year to deal with the different strain.

Do vaccines cause autism?

Vaccines do NOT cause autism.

The proper health insurance should financially cover you for the flu shot and other health-related incidents that you fall victim to.
