Spread the word, not the flu! Vaccination may prevent a person from spreading the flu to others. If you’ve been vaccinated, encourage your coworkers to do so, too! Getting vaccinated helps you protect yourself and those around you. These facts are from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
Q: What is the flu shot?
A: It’s is an inactivated vaccine (containing killed virus) that is given with a needle, usually in the arm. It is approved for use in people older than 6 months, including healthy people and people with chronic medical conditions.
Q: What will the seasonal flu vaccine protect you from?
A: It protects against three influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during the upcoming season. The 2010-2011 flu vaccine will protect against 2009 Pandemic H1N1, and two other influenza viruses (an H3N2 virus and an influenza B virus).
Q: How quickly will you be protected after getting the flu shot?
A: About 2 weeks after vaccination, antibodies that provide protection against influenza virus infection develop in the body.
The CDC estimates that every year in the U.S., more than 200,000 people are hospitalized and more than 36,000 die from the flu and its complications. For the elderly and people with certain chronic illnesses, the flu and its complications can be life threatening.
