Protect Your Family and Yourself with the Flu Vaccine Today!
After suffering the sunburns of Shanghai’s summer, our bodies now have to deal with the autumn and the arrival of seasonal flu. The flu, which is also known as influenza is a contagious respiratory disease that infects the nose, throat, and lungs. It can lead to serious complications, hospitalization, and even death. Examples of severe flu-related complications are pneumonia and bronchitis. Flu can also aggravate the conditions of those with existing chronic diseases like asthma, cardiovascular diseases or diabetes. The CDC of the United States recommend that everyone who is 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine. Also, those who care for people who are at an increased risk should also be vaccinated. Those who live with or care for those at high risk for complications from flu should get vaccinated because children of less than 6 months do not have complete immunological systems and are too young to receive the flu vaccine, it is therefore important that parents and those caring for these children get vaccinated.
The groups of people who are at increased risk are
- Pregnant Women- children younger than 5, especially children younger than 2 years old
- The elderly, especially people 50 years of age and older
- People of any age with certain chronic medical conditions
- People who live in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities.
The vaccines are renewed every year to make sure that you and your families receive the updated flu vaccines. It is also important to note that you need to get vaccinated on a yearly basis because flu viruses are always changing and vaccines are the only way of achieving optimal protection.
