Flu season is here, how to save on the Flu Shot
Most people associate flu season with winter but it can last for up to half a year, depending upon your location. It typically starts in October, and continues until May. It peaks in mid-winter, December, January, and February. Flu season usually remains constant, though peak often changes. Some areas in the country can have an outbreak of a large number of cases while others may experience a few cases in the same week. For example, 2020-21flu season lasted for 7 months, and there were more than 23,000 flu-related deaths. An estimated 41 to 57 million Americans were affected during the flu season. Flu should not be taken lightly, as it is not just a common sickness but a draining one. Young children, elderly, and pregnant women are especially at a high risk.
To protect yourself from getting the flu, you should avoid people who have flu-like symptoms, wash your hands often with soap and water, and cover your nose and mouth while coughing or sneezing. Flu symptoms include feeling feverish, cough, and tiredness. Also, regularly clean and disinfectant commonly used surfaces, and avoid touching your face, mouth, and eyes. To ensure robust protection against flu, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends flu shots for everyone six months or older. Elderly with no contraindications should receive the flu vaccination each year.
CDC recommends yearly flu vaccination
You should get the flu shot each year because the flu virus or influenza changes each year. The vaccine is updated each year to match with the new strain circulating the season. Sometimes, there could be more than one strain circulating the peak season, you may be recommended a vaccine that is effective in treating all those strains. Some vaccines are trivalent, meaning they offer protection against three flu virus stains, while others are quadrivalent vaccines provide protection from four influenza stains. People above 65 years of age are recommended higher dose vaccines. CDC also recommends yearly vaccination as your immune system needs increased protection against the flu virus each year to treat its strains. Many people refrain from getting the flu shot due to cost. It may cost you anything from $17 to $32, depending upon the brand, and location.
