The best way to protect yourself and your loved ones against influenza (flu) is to get a flu vaccine every flu season. Flu is a contagious respiratory disease that can lead to serious illness, hospitalization, or even death. CDC recommends everyone six months and older get an annual flu vaccine.
While some people who get vaccinated still get sick, flu vaccination has been shown in several studies to reduce severity of illness.
Flu viruses are constantly changing, so flu vaccines may be updated from one season to the next to protect against the viruses that research suggests will be common during the upcoming flu season. • Your protection from a flu vaccine declines over time. Yearly vaccination is needed for the best protection.
