According to health experts, this year’s flu is very severe and arrived in full force. Individuals that are aged six months and older are urged to get the flu vaccine. Although people that get the flu vaccine get the flu, their symptoms are considerably less severe according to doctors.

According to Dr. Shelle Barber, “Anytime you have the flue, you’re pretty sick. But a lot of people say this flu is worst because it’s upper respiratory and people tend to get more pneumonia with it.” Dr. Barber added how “The fever is a little higher–they just feel worst in general.”

Dr. Barber stated how the type of individuals that are vulnerable are babies and seniors. Not only will the flu vaccine protect against the flu, but it will protect the people you come in contact with.
