Why get a flu shot?
- The flu is much more serious than the common cold and can lead to health complications.
- The flu virus changes every year and so does the vaccine. For the best protection, you should get vaccinated every year.
- Not everyone is well equipped to overcome the flu. Avoid spreading the flu to your loved ones with a flu shot.
- It’s easy! Just visit your local pharmacy.
Who is most at risk?
Everyone can get the flu, including healthy adults. In fact, every year, 5-20% of adults will catch the virus.
However, some people are at higher risk of flu related complications:
- People over 65+ years old and children under 5 years old
- Pregnant women and those planning to become pregnant
- Residents of long-time care facilities
- People with chronic diseases such as diabetes
