The flu, also known as influenza, is a common viral infection that can be deadly, especially in high-risk groups. It is important to treat the virus as soon as possible because it is highly contagious and can even be deadly.

Influenza can be spread in multiple ways such as airborne respiratory droplets through coughs or sneezes, saliva by kissing or sharing beverages, skin-to-skin contact, or even by touching a contaminated surface such as a table or doorknob.

The flu can be particularly serious or deadly for newborn babies, elderly people, and people with certain chronic illnesses. Flu symptoms include a cough, sore throat, congestion, runny nose, headaches, fever, muscle aches, body aches, chills, and fatigue. It is better to get preventative care and to get vaccinated with the flu shot before you contract the illness. Many can be deterred away from getting vaccinated because of the many common flu myths. Some common flu myths are that the flu vaccine is only necessary for the old and very young, flu shots don’t really work, and that someone will get the flu if they take the vaccine. Although it is true it can be riskier for older and younger ones who get the flu, the vaccine is for anyone who does not want to catch the virus or spread the virus to others. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends annual immunizations for anyone 6 months and older. As for those who believe that the shot does not actually work, the vaccine has proven to reduce the chances of catching the flu by approximately 60%. The vaccine effectiveness is however subject to variables such as the amount of time between a person’s exposure to the flu and the time of their vaccination, and their age and health status. The vaccine will not give you the virus because the vaccine has been inactivated which makes it biologically unable to cause illness.

Another common misconception about the flu shot is that it is too late to get a vaccination. It is true that October and November are the recommended months for getting vaccinated but receiving a vaccination later in the season from December to March can still protect you because flu season which usually peaks after January and it can last as late as May.
