The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that up to 20 percent of the American population is affected by the influenza virus every year. Flu shots help prevent the spread of this virus by building up antibodies in the bloodstreams of vaccinated individuals, providing substantial protection against the season’s most prevalent flu types.
Everyone is susceptible to the flu, even young and healthy adults, but individuals with compromised immune systems are particularly vulnerable to this illness and should make getting their flu shots a priority. These at-risk groups include:
- Adults over the age of 65
- Pregnant women and women who have recently given birth
- Children younger than 6, but older than 6 months
- Adults with certain chronic conditions, including asthma, heart disease, and diabetes
