This season’s vaccine is only available through injection. This year’s strains are the most likely candidates based on last flu season and world health trends. Your vaccine will contain three or four strains.
Everyone over age six should receive the vaccine. This protects you and those around you who may be at higher risk, like the elderly, children five and under, and those with chronic illness.
It’s best to get your flu shot in October because flu season usually runs from December to February. It’s not too late to get your vaccine now.
Children between six months and eight years of age are recommended to have two doses for their first flu vaccination. The first dose primes the body to create antibodies. The booster is administered about 20 days later.
Flu symptoms leave you feeling crummy. Sore muscles, tiredness, diarrhea and fever are signs it’s more than a cold.
Listen as Dr. H. Dele Davies joins Melanie Cole, MS, to share what you need to know about flu shots and other booster vaccinations.
