It’s that time of the year again! From October to May, the flu is most prominent. Most doctors and health care professionals recommend getting a flu vaccine to protect yourself against the flu.

Each flu season, millions contract the illness, and thousands are hospitalized because of it. Getting a shot is the best defense against the flu. If you want to be flu free all year, then the flu shot is your best option. What may feel like a few moments of pain may result in long-term protection against the illness.

The shot takes about 2 weeks to activate, but it can protect you for up to six months. You can get the flu shot at your local medical facility.
