By definition, Influenza is highly contagious respiratory illness. An accumulation of viruses attacks your body’s immune system. Although symptoms are generally mild, they can lead to more severe complications or infection.
The flu vaccine was developed from a substance that virtually behaves like a flu, which will tell your body to produce antibodies and protect your immune system. It takes an estimated fourteen days before it affects your body but will progressively stimulate production of antibodies more aggressively to ensure that you are not affected the influenza virus during flu season.
Why it’s important to receive the flu shot:
The flu affects many people nationwide, every year. The virus itself is not as harmful as the symptoms that deteriorate your body. While most patients briefly suffer from a few coughs and a runny nose, some cases have left patients bed-ridden for weeks.
Flu season starts just around the beginning of October, running for an estimated eight months until the following May. Since the season is pretty much four months short of a full year, it’s important that you guard your health all year round.
