Flu vaccination is especially important for adults 65 years and older, who account for most hospitalizations and deaths from the flu.
Flu vaccination is the most effective way to prevent the flu.
A flu vaccine is needed each year, because flu viruses change. Studies have shown that the body’s immunity to flu viruses (acquired either through natural infection or vaccination) declines over time.
Each year in the United States, on average 23,600 people die from seasonal flu-related complications and more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from seasonal flu-related causes.
