Why Should I Get a Flu Shot?

Here comes flu season! Are you ready for it?

It's that time of year again! It's only a matter of time before the flu starts making its rounds through your office, your school, or your child's daycare. Will you become one of its victims? Your best preventative move against this nasty virus is to get a flu shot early in the season. Need more convincing? Consider these reasons to stop by your doctor or pharmacy today.

It's effective.

The flu shot doesn't offer a 100 percent guarantee of flu immunity, but it is designed to prevent the most likely strands of influenza that will be circulating this year. Even if you do still fall prey to some form of the flu this winter, the vaccination will make the symptoms milder and the recovery period shorter.

It protects the people around you.

If you won't get the flu shot for your own health, get it for the sake of those you come into contact with who are especially vulnerable. Flu immunizations are vital for anyone who spends time with young infants, the elderly, or anyone with a weakened immune system.

It's safe.

Bad reactions to the flu shot are rare. Unless you have an egg allergy, a history of Guillain–Barré Syndrome, or a past complication resulting from the vaccination, you are good to go!
