Dr. Lisa Fitzpatrick answers questions about the flu and the flu vaccine.
There is so much talk about the flu vaccine this year, because this year, more than ever, because it is essential that everyone get a vaccination. Not only are we preventing the spread of flu, but at this time during coronavirus, we need to be looking out for each other in general.
There are people who are at high risk of being very sick from flu or even dying from flu. People with chronic health conditions, children, and our seniors.
So even if you’re young and healthy, you may come in contact or spread the flu to someone who’s likely to even die of the flu. So, this is why everyone needs to be vaccinated for flu.
