Oh, Flu-ey! Why we do what we do...about the Flu

Get your Flu Shot - LBSFlu season is once again upon us, so now is the time to remind your groups and their employees why a flu shot should be on their to-do list, and just how important it is.

Influenza is serious business, a disease that can lead to hospitalization and, in some cases, death. Consider: Every flu season is different, and flu infections can affect people differently. Even healthy people can get very sick from the flu and spread it to others.

‘tis the season

In the United States, flu season typically begins as early as October and lasts as late as May – otherwise known as when flu viruses are circulating at higher levels. Getting a seasonal flu vaccine (either via flu shot or the nasal spray flu vaccine) is the single best way to reduce the chances that you will contract it and spread it to others. The more people are vaccinated against the flu, the less flu can spread through the community. Even those who are unable to receive the flu vaccine benefit from others getting vaccinated to reduce the spread of the virus.
