FLU VACCINE: Your Protection Against Flu this Seasonby GMCClinics
Influenza vaccination commonly known as Flu vaccine or Flu shot is an annual vaccination recommended for a given year to help protect against the influenza virus(s) infection.
Although Influenza infection can affect people differently, even healthy people can get very sick from flu and spread it to others. An annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to reduce chances of catching the virus and also lessen the chance to spread it to others.
Sometimes, it can be very tricky to tell the difference between flu and common colds. Flu, in general is much worse than Common Cold and rather than assuming your symptoms just of common colds, it is recommended to have vaccination to get yourself protected. Very young and old are more prone in getting this disease.
Unlike other vaccinations, flu vaccine is recommended for pregnant women. It is also highly recommended for travelers at this time of the year.
It usually takes about 2 weeks for the antibodies against the virus to develop.
