Do You Need to Get a Flu Shot Every Year?

Even if you received a flu vaccine last year, you’ll need to get another one this year. Annual flu shots are necessary for two reasons. The first is that the immune system’s response to the flu vaccine weakens with time, so yearly shots are needed to strengthen protection. The second is that a different strain of flu is likely to be prevalent each year. Because of this, the vaccine is updated annually to ensure it will protect against current strains and it’s important that you keep up to date with the most effective vaccine.
