According to the CDC, the flu vaccine prevents millions of illnesses and flu-related doctor visits every year. During the 2018–2019 flu season, vaccinations prevented an estimated 58,000 flu-related hospitalizations, 2.3 million flu-associated medical visits, and 4.4 million flu-related illnesses.
The Flu is Never Fun
This year, more than ever before, it’s important to get the flu shot. The vaccine not only protects you from getting sick, but it helps protect your entire community. Herd immunity or community immunity arises when enough people get the flu shot, making its spread from person to person more unlikely.
