Influenza can cause days of fever, chills, cough, sore throat, sneezing, head and even muscle aches. On average, 36,000 people die each year from the flu and over 200,000 individuals are hospitalized from flu complications such as viral or bacterial pneumonia, congestive heart failure, diabetes, and the worsening of chronic medical conditions.
It’s worth noting that regular updates to vaccinations are important since diseases change. The best example of this is the flu, which should be treated with a simple flu shot. The CDC recommends that the best time to receive the flu vaccination is between October and December. Flu activity usually peaks in February and vaccination should take place before that time. High risk individuals are especially encouraged to get vaccinated. These individuals include anyone over 65 years of age, have a chronic or long-term condition, or are pregnant. Even those who are not within the high risk categeory should still get protection against the flu.
