Why Should I Get Vaccinated Against the Flu?
Influenza is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Every flu season is different, and influenza infection can affect people differently. Even healthy people can get very sick from the flu and spread it to others. "Flu season" in the United States can begin as early as October and last as late as May.
