Commentary: The truth about influenza and vaccines
The flu vaccine has to be produced well before flu season, and usually includes three or four flu strains.
According to the Center for Disease Control, even though new observations about the flu vaccine continue to be made, experts continue to recommend annual flu vaccinations for children and adults.
Despite warm temperatures and sunny days, flu season has arrived, and local health officials are urging residents to receive their flu shots as soon as possible. Sometimes, the infection can also occur by touching surfaces or objects contaminated with the flu virus and then touching the eyes, mouth or nose. "CDC recommends everyone 6 months of age and older get vaccinated annually".
The flu vaccine is available at doctors' offices and pharmacies. Infants, seniors and individuals with chronic heart, lung or endocrine diseases are more likely than others to become seriously ill if infected by the influenza virus and require hospitalization.
