Best Bets for Flu Prevention
Studies have shown that getting vaccinated each year aids with prevention of the flu.
For those over 65, there is a greater risk of getting the flu, and vaccines should be done yearly as well. But, seniors should NOT get a nasal spray vaccine, according to the CDC. High dose and adjuvanted flu vaccines are recommended for seniors.
The American Academy of Pediatrics and CDC state that vaccines are safe, effective and can protect your child from serious illness.
