Flu Shot

What is a Flu Shot?

A flu shot is the seasonal influenza vaccine to help protect against flu viruses that research. New flu vaccines are developed twice a year because the influenza virus changes quickly. The seasonal flu shot should offer medium to high protection against that season’s flu and helps for a quicker recovery after one ends up catching the flu.
