Getting vaccinated is the best way to prevent the flu, and National Influenza Vaccination Week is a reminder to prioritize your health during flu season. The flu can spread quickly and cause serious illness, including pneumonia, and even death. Vaccination is particularly important for those at high risk, including young children, pregnant women, and older adults. It’s important to talk to your healthcare provider about the flu vaccine, as they can provide personalized recommendations based on your health history and risk factors. By getting vaccinated, you not only protect yourself, but also those around you who may be more vulnerable to serious complications from the flu.
