Influenza, commonly known as “the flu,” causes a contagious infection of the nose, throat and lungs. The flu usually lasts 3 to 7 days while a cough may linger for up to 2 weeks. Everyone, including healthy individuals, can contract and spread the flu. Obtaining the flu vaccination not only protects you from illness but also those around you that may be at higher risk from becoming seriously ill. The flu vaccine is the most effective way to prevent infection.
The flu shot should be considered for:
- New and expectant mothers, as well as other parents, family members, and caregivers to infants younger than 6 months old
- Individuals above 50 years of age
- Those with medical conditions including asthma and other respiratory disorders, compromised immune systems (including organ transplant and HIV/AIDS patients), diabetics, dialysis patients, etc.
- All in contact with people that have health problems that put them at risk for developing complications – especially healthcare workers
