Flu season is fast approaching, and that means it is time to consider getting the flu vaccine. Peggy Chapman, the Infection Prevention and Employee Health Nurse at Taylorville Memorial Hospital, shares why getting vaccinated is important.
For those who are skeptical about flu shots, and their effectiveness, Chapman explains why there is no reason to be worried about the shot.
There are ways to prevent the flu as well once flu season begins. For instance, washing your hands is a very effective way to prevent getting sick.
No matter what, with flu season fast approaching, it is probably best to stay on the safe side and get a vaccinated.
