The flu is dangerous and can kill. Therefore it is important to protect yourself and others during this upcoming flu season. Remember people working in healthcare aren't the only ones that should have a flu shot. If employed in a capacity where you are in constant contact with people such as law enforcement, working in a nursery, beautician, bank teller, or mailperson you should think about protecting yourself with a flu shot. You can get vaccinated at your healthcare professional's office or the local pharmacy.
"The inactivated influenza vaccine (trivalent or quadrivalent) is recommended for the upcoming influenza season because it was 63% effective against circulating strains in 2015 to 2016, according to a new policy statement from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)."
