Influenza (the “flu”) is a highly contagious viral infection affecting millions across the world each year. This disease is usually mild and results in a range of symptoms which include sore throat, fever, and muscle aches. Influenza can, however, become a serious medical emergency that results in hospitalization and even death. Worldwide, the flu epidemic results in about 3 to 5 million cases of severe illness, and about 250,000 to 500,000 deaths each year.
To help prevent the virus, a yearly vaccination is released to help prevent the contraction and spread of the disease. The flu virus is highly adaptive and quickly becomes resistant to immunization and antibiotics with each passing flu season. That’s why it’s important to the health of yourself and your family to get a flu shot at least once per year.
We highly recommend everyone 6 months and older, from infants to seniors, receive an annual flu shot to help prevent the possibility of contracting the disease or limiting the harshness and longevity of the symptoms. This is especially important to high-risk individuals which include children under the age of 2, seniors over the age of 65, and those with medical conditions such as asthma or diabetes.
