How does the influenza vaccine work?
The influenza vaccine triggers the growth of antibodies in the blood stream. These antibodies protect the immune system from the seasonal influenza virus, sparing the patient from days or weeks of unpleasant symptoms. Vaccinations also help slow the spread of disease in the community. Long story short, receiving an influenza vaccine is important!
It is especially crucial to receive a flu shot if you are older than 65, are pregnant or have recently given birth, or work in a health care setting. These factors may increase your risk of becoming ill and spreading the virus to those around you.
