Every year, influenza affects millions of people worldwide. Influenza or “the flu” is a contagious respiratory infection caused by the influenza virus. Symptoms and illness can be mild to severe and Complications of the flu can lead to hospitalization or even death.
To combat this virus, an influenza vaccine or “flu shot” is released every year to help protect against that year’s strain of the flu virus. This vaccine is highly recommended to everyone over the age of 6 months, especially children and seniors 65+.
