Why should people get vaccinated against the flu?
Influenza is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and possibly death. Even healthy people can get very sick from the flu and spread it to others.
When should I get a flu vaccination?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that people get their seasonal flu vaccine as soon as the vaccine becomes available in their community. Vaccination before December is best to ensure protective antibodies are in place before flu activity is at its highest.
