Influenza or the flu affects hundreds of thousands of people a year. The flu can result in further complications especially for the elderly, children, and sick. However, it is also easily avoidable with a single dose vaccination. The flu shot is created each year and tailored the the flu strains that will be prominent in that year.

It is a myth that you can catch the flu from a flu shot. You may experience some side effects that may be perceived as the flu such as Soreness at the injection spot, hoarseness, and fever. However, these will go away and is not a sign of the flu illness.
