As you read and hear everywhere, Flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by a virus. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that everyone over the age of 6 months get a flu shot. Everyone is at risk, but you are especially vulnerable if you have a chronic disease such as diabetes, heart disease or asthma. If you have infants or elderly folks in your home or spend time with them, you could be spreading a life threatening illness to them.
When you get a Flu shot, you protect yourself, any newborns or infants who are too young to get vaccinated, and people at high risk for complications from the flu.
