National Influenza Vaccination Week
Why take the risk? Call SERVPRO of Plano Working to make it “Like it never even happened.”Starting in 2005, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) established the National Influenza Vaccination week “to highlight the importance of continuing flu vaccination through the holiday season andbeyond.” In 2018, by the end of November only about 41% of the recommended US population had been vaccinated.If you’ve already gotten the flu, you can still get vaccinated to protect you against other strands of the flu, according to the CDC. People with high risk of complications from the flu include young children, pregnant women,people with certain chronic health conditions and people over the age of 65, and should get vaccinated.Although anyone is at risk of getting the flu, for high-risk people,hospitalization or death is more likely than for others.According to the CDC, “flu vaccination can reduce flu illnesses, doctors’ visits and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations.” Get a flu shot today to protect yourself and your loved ones.
