Houston, It’s Not Too Late To Get A Flu Shot

November brings cooler weather to Houston every year, and with it, the height of flu season. With the season in full swing, if you have yet to get a flu shot yet there is no time to waste. While October is still the best time of year to receive your annual vaccination, it isn’t too late to protect you and your family against the flu virus this year.

GET A FLU SHOT FOR OTHERS

Why do you need a flu shot? Flu shots are an essential part of your annual healthcare. This is true even if you are very healthy. Not only do they protect you, but also everyone around you. When everyone who is able to get a flu shot is vaccinated, they are less likely to get others sick. If you may be around infants who are too young to be vaccinated, your flu shot can help protect them. It can also help protect the elderly, and people who are immunocompromised.

GET A FLU SHOT FOR YOURSELF

Even if you do get sick this season, a flu shot will still help you. The flu shot has been proven to reduce the severity and duration of the flu in those who catch it after receiving a flu shot. This means less days out of work or school, and more days feeling healthy. This is especially important in younger children, who are much more susceptible to the symptoms of the flu than teenagers or adults. The same virus that makes you uncomfortable for a few days could be 10 times worse for your preschool aged child. With the flu shot, your child is less likely to experience complications related to the flu, and much more likely to have a quick and easy recovery.
