WHY: Influenza can be a serious disease that may lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Every flu season is different, and influenza infection can affect people differently. Even healthy people can get very sick from the flu and spread it to others.
An annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to reduce the chances that you will get seasonal flu and spread it to others.
