Each month we set the facts straight regarding a popular health and wellness myth.
This month’s myth: You can get the flu from a flu shot.
The flu is a contagious illness caused by flu viruses that infect the nose, throat and lungs. EVERYONE is at risk for getting the flu! The best way to prevent the flu is to get a flu vaccine each year. The flu season can last into the spring, so getting your flu shot after October 1 gives you the best protection for the whole season.
