Fast Flu Facts
Did you know that up to 20% of the American population is affected by the flu every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC)? It’s true! Unfortunately, no amount of orange juice and vitamins can take the place of a flu shot, which is the single best way to prevent disease transmission, severe flu symptoms, and life-threatening flu complications like pneumonia. Although it’s still technically possible (albeit unlikely) to catch the flu when vaccinated, your symptoms will probably be very mild and short-lived.
Everyone, including young and healthy adults, can be severely impacted by the flu. However, it’s particularly important for the following high-risk groups to receive a flu shot:
- Adults ages 65+
- Young children between the ages of six months and two years
- Residents of long-term care facilities, such as nursing homes and rehabilitation centers
- Pregnant women and women who have recently given birth
- Adults with chronic health conditions, including diabetes, kidney disease, asthma, and heart disease
