The Flu Ends with You
Protect yourself - and those around you - by getting a flu vaccine!
Everyone 6 months of age and older should get vaccinated every year, including pregnant women.
Flu vaccines cause antibodies to develop in the body about two weeks after vaccination.
- A person CANNOT get the flu from the flu vaccine.
- Flu is very common in the US during the fall and winter. Millions of people get sick, hundreds of thousands are hospitalized, and tens of thousands die from the flu every year.
- The vaccine reduces the risk of getting sick or hospitalized with the flu.
- Most health insurance companies cover the flu vaccine. There is usually no out of pocket cost. Pharmacies can bill the following: Medicare B, HMSA, Kaiser, UHA, HMAA, HMA, PSWA.
- Vaccination may not prevent the disease in 100% of individuals. Persons should consult their healthcare provider to determine if they have a condition that precludes them from receiving a vaccine. All vaccines have side effects. The most common side effects include local reactions and mild general symptoms. For more information, visit www.cdc.gov
