Flu season typically begins in early fall and then finally ends mid-Spring. Influenza spreads with extreme ease, putting everybody in the vicinity of an infected person at risk. While most people’s immune systems are capable of quickly eradicating the infection, people with compromised immune systems – particularly infants and elderly people – are susceptible to developing potentially-deadly symptoms.
This makes it essential for everybody to get a flu shot. The Center for Disease Control recommends that everybody over six months of age receive a flu shot each year. Even if you’re a healthy adult, unless you have recently received a vaccination, you are vulnerable to contracting the flu. It’s also important for the health of everyone around you that you get a flu shot. Each year, businesses lose millions in productivity as a result of employees calling in sick due to the flu.

Most people get over the flu within a couple weeks of experiencing symptoms like headaches, body aches, sore throat, and runny nose. However, complications can occur: inflammation of the heart and brain, organ failure, and inflammatory response being just a few.
People over 65, people with chronic conditions like asthma, pregnant women, and young children are all at risk of developing complications.
