How do Flu Shots work?
First a flu shot introduces an inactive form of the influenza virus to your body’s system. Second, this inactive strain of the influenza virus triggers the development of antibodies within your body. Consequently, then when you come in contact with an active strain of the flu, your immune system will be ready to fight it off.
How to protect yourself against the Influenza Virus?
The influenza virus is highly contagious and can spread easily from person to person. This means that you’re more likely to catch it if you don’t protect yourself against it. Nevertheless, habits we recommend to reduce your risk of infection are: washing your hands frequently and keeping them away from your eyes, ears, mouth, and nose to help minimize contact with the virus. Cover your mouth when you cough and disinfect your surfaces regularly. Additionally, supporting your immune system by giving yourself lots of rest, water, and exercise also helps increase your body’s ability to fight viruses. Although all of these habits help decrease the risk of exposure, the best proven way to avoid the flu is to get vaccinated against it.
