Time to get your Flu Shot

It was exactly 100 years ago that the world suffered through the worst pandemic since the Black Death swept through the world in the Middle Ages; the influenza epidemic of 1918 killed about 675,000 Americans, it was the most severe pandemic in recent history, sweeping the globe more quickly that any disease had ever spread before, killing more than 50 million people. This was nearly as many as would perish in the Second World War! Fortunately, today we can control much of the damage that the flu can cause to populations. This is partly through mitigating risks, and partly through the flu shot. The CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against influenza and its potentially serious complications.

While there are many different flu viruses, flu vaccines protect against the 3 or 4 viruses that research suggests will be most common. Three-component vaccines contain an H3N2, an H1N1 and a B virus. Four component vaccines have an additional B virus component.
