It can be difficult to stay healthy during the winter season; however, there are actions you can take to prevent certain health issues. Influenza, or the flu, is a common viral infection, that in some cases can prove deadly if you have high-risk factors. To keep yourself protected, the medical care professionals at Morris Park Medical UCC in the Bronx, NY, recommend getting your annual flu vaccination.

3 Important Reasons to Get Your Annual Flu Vaccination

1. Prevent Spreading Illnessmedical care

Even if you don’t display any physical symptoms of the flu, it’s possible to pass it along to others through coughing, sneezing, or sharing common surfaces. Because children and seniors are the most at risk, anyone who is often around these age groups should receive the flu shot.

2. Does Not Require Much Time

Whether you choose to go to your local doctor’s office or pharmacy, it’s convenient to get the vaccine as it is readily available and only takes a few minutes. Insurances cover the shot, so you don’t have to worry about spending a lot of money just to get vaccinated.

3. Avoid Missing Work or School

Getting the flu can take a toll on your everyday life by making you miss work or school. With the holiday season around the corner, the last thing you want is to spend your vacation days sick at home.
