Arrowhead Health Centers’ Medical Director, Dr. Janice Johnston, talks with Ch12 News about the new flu shots for this year. This year, the vaccine protects against 4 different strains of the flu virus. Vaccines typically change every year since the flu virus quickly adapts and new strains develop year over year. Also, the CDC has pulled the flu mist which was quite popular due to its application which did not require the use of a needle. Unfortunately, the mist was only shown to be about 6% effective in fighting the disease.
