Why be immunized?
To stop the spread of influenza, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends immunization to protect yourself and the people around you from flu, and to help reduce the strain on healthcare systems responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. Influenza can be very serious for small children, older adults and anyone in poor health.
Every year in the United States, more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from flu complications and about 36,000 people die from flu. In the early stages of influenza, many people don’t realize they are infected. They may not feel sick. Studies show that most healthy adults can infect others with the flu up to 1 day before they start having symptoms, and they can infect others for up to 5 days after becoming sick.
How can you protect your yourself, your family and co-workers? Be immunized against influenza this year and every year. Due to the influenza virus changing every year, the vaccine changes too. To be protected, you always need the current season’s vaccine.
