that time of the year again. You are probably seeing all kinds of notices
for getting your flu shots. So what are you waiting for? You should become
vaccinated every year. New flu vaccines are released every year to keep up with
rapidly adapting flu viruses. Because flu viruses evolve so quickly, last
year's vaccine may not protect you from this year's viruses. This year's annual
flu shot protects against swine flu as well as two other influenza viruses that
are expected to be in circulation this flu season. After getting your
vaccination, your immune system produces antibodies that will protect you from
the vaccine viruses. The CDC recommends annual influenza vaccinations for
everyone age 6 months or older. Vaccination is especially important for people
at high risk of influenza including, pregnant women, older adults, young
children. A shot now could save you several sick days this winter.
