More about the Flu Shot
Patients should get a flu shot every year as there are different flu viruses that spread each year. In effort to prevent disease, the shot is estimated to be 63% effective in combatting the flu virus. It is recommended that anyone above the age of 6 months get a flu shot unless the patient has a severe allergy to eggs. If you have already had the flu this year, then you do not need to have the vaccine.
