Flu vaccination is the most effective way to prevent the flu.
A flu vaccine is needed annually, because flu viruses are constantly changing. The flu vaccine is formulated each year to keep up with the flu viruses as they change. Studies have shown that the body’s immunity to influenza 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. Get Vaccinated.
