Flu Season is in Full Swing!
Did you get your flu vaccine yet? There is still time if you have not.
It is all over the news this last month or so. Hospitals have an overwhelming amount of sick people. I know where I live our hospitals are full and have had to turn people away. It is just sad, and crazy how sick a person with the flu can become.
Everyone who is 6 months old or older should be vaccinated with the flu vaccine every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
If you are at a high risk of serious complications from the flu, are pregnant, are 65 years old or older, have certain medical conditions including asthma, diabetes and chronic lung disease, or live or care for people who are at high risk of complications from the flu it is very important you get your flu shot.
Did you know that the flu strain changes every year? I just learned that recently. So, don’t think that because you got a shot last year, that you are good. You need the shot every year as the strain changes and so does the vaccine.
You may choose to not have the vaccine, as it is your body and your choice.
As always, eat healthy, exercise, wash your hands often and be safe
