The annual flu shot is advertised to prevent the infection from sickening those who have gotten the immunization. Generally the flu shot protects from certain strains and is updated annually. This winter season the CDC is saying that receiving the shot will not likely be enough to avoid getting sick with the flu. So should citizens not get the shot to save money and a little pain?
Christian Broda says it is an answer that each individual will have to decide. Germs lurk all over public and private places. The best way to avoid getting ill anytime of the year, but especially cold and flu season, is to thoroughly wash hands throughout each day. Another easy tip is to avoid touching the face; that is how many germs are transferred into the body. Finally, another tip is to keep healthy with vitamin supplements. Vitamin C is especially helpful in boosting the body’s immune system.
