Getting vaccinated for the flu is the best way to protect against the potentially deadly illness. Thousands of people are hospitalized and/ or die every year due to flu-related causes. Every flu season is different, and it affects everyone differently. By getting vaccinated, you reduce your risk of getting the flu by 40-60%, you reduce the risk of flu associated hospitalization, risk of serious medical events associated with chronic conditions is decreased, and it helps protect people around you who are at risk for flu illness such as young children and people with chronic health conditions.
