Why do you need a flu vaccine every year? Flu viruses change and so the vaccine of often updated to keep up with changing viruses. Your immune protection from vaccination declines over time and a flu vaccine is vital to reducing your chances of getting sick. The flu vaccine is not 100% effective but it does the severity of illness, helping you to feel better sooner. It is especially important to get a flu shot this year because the symptoms of influenza and COVID are very similar.
As the leaves change colors and the cooler weather starts, we end up spending more time indoors where the air is dry allowing germs to spread easily. We encourage you to get your flu shot sooner instead of later this year. Get vaccinated now.
