Flu Shots: What we all should know prior to getting one!

December 3, 2015

 

How many times have you been to a doctor’s office, a CVS or Walgreens, or even your supermarket and you see a sign or are greeted with a “have you had your flu shot yet?”  These signs used to make me and everyone else believe that everyone should get one and also that they are effective in preventing the flu.  Well the overwhelming answer for 2014-2015 flu season was that it was not the case!  According to the CDC (The Center for Disease Control) they concluded that the overall vaccination effectiveness was around 19%.  The CDC is an unbiased government agency, unlike the drug stores, supermarkets, and the doctors offering the shots for profit.  Now, I know that everyone offering the flu shot is not saying, “before you take this shot, know statistically it only works 1/5 of the time.”  Therefore, if flu shots are not even 50% effective, what are we do if there is no magic bullet in preventing the flu this season?  Well during the fall and winter seasons, we must increase our overall sun exposure to get more vitamin D, as well as increasing water intake.  Furthermore, we must keep a balance diet and limit the amount of sugar we put into our bodies.  Lastly and most importantly, we must try and keep our emotional stress down to allow our bodies to adapt.  Hopefully now you’ll have a better idea of what to say when someone asks you “Have you had your flu shot yet?”
