DON'T LET THE FLU STOP YOU!!
The Flu season is right around the corner - generally from December to March.
For those with chronic conditions such as asthma or diabetes, the flu can be extremely dangerous.


It is recommended that those with chronic conditions get a flu shot every year. A flu shot greatly reduces your risk of being miserable from fevers, aches , pains, a cough and extreme fatigue due to the flu. Adults who get a flu shot miss fewer days of work and have fewer doctor visits for respiratory illness that those who do not get a flu shot. It also reduces the risk of complications, such as pneumonia.

TOP FIVE REASONS TO GET A FLU SHOT:

1. Those who have chronic conditions such as asthma or diabetes need to protect themselves against the potentially dangerous complications that can result from the flu.

2. Despite the popular belief, you will not get the flu from getting a flu shot.

3. You need a flu shot once a year because the flu virus changes every year. The flu shot you received last year won't protect you against the new strains this year.

4. Others my unknowingly give you the flu. The flu is very contagious even before the symptoms appear.

5. The flu shot is your best shot at protection against influenza this year.
