An Extensive Guide to the Flu Vaccine: What You Need to Know

If you haven't received your flu vaccine, get to your doctor or pharmacist pronto. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend immunization for every person 6 months and older. Failure to do so may leave you sick with a fever causing weakness, dehydration, and/or an inability to work or attend school for a week or more.
