Flu Vaccinations

Flu Vaccinations are preventative vaccinations that can be administered yearly to reduce the risk of contracting influenza.

Flu Vaccination Overview

  • The vaccination protects against multiple strains of influenza (3 strains in 2013).
  • The vaccine formula changes yearly to target the strains that are deemed the biggest threat (they are designed to protect you from the most common and/or dangerous forms of influenza active each year).
  • Vaccination is needed each year to remain effective because of the different strains of flu that are prevalent each year, and because immunity decreases over time.
  • There is no live virus in the flu shot.
