Vaccines work by introducing a weakened or dead strain of an antigen into your system.
Would you like a professional review of your immunization record or more information about the flu shot or other vaccinations?
Vaccinations are an essential part of both personal and public health, and Americans are fortunate to have access to a wide spectrum of vaccines.
You receive most vaccines during childhood. The flu vaccine is a bit different because it is formulated each year to protect against the most common strain of influenza at that specific point in time.
If you’re in overall good health, the flu vaccine is certainly not necessary. However, fighting off a bout of the flu is no simple matter, so many people come in for an annual flu vaccine even if they are in peak physical condition.
