Winter is coming ! And so does the Flu season, get a Flu Vaccine shot at your home through MD24 House Call!
Flu (influenza) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and lungs. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. The Flu Vaccine shot is the best way to protect yourself and family from the flu, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The CDC now recommends a Flu Vaccine for everyone 6 months of age and older. However, certain people are at greater risk for serious complications if they get the flu (adults above 65 years old, children younger than 5, pregnant women, those with chronic conditions such as asthma, diabetes, or heart disease). It's especially important fot them to get Flu Vaccine shots to avoid health problems as a result of the flu.
Flu season runs from October to May. You should get a Flu Vaccine as early in the season as possible, as it gives the body a chance to build up immunity to (protection from) the flu. But getting a Flu Vaccine later in the season is still better than not getting the Flu Vaccine at all. And remember, the Flu Vaccine will not give you the flu!
