flu (influenza) vaccines
A: Flu vaccination can keep you from getting sick from flu. Protecting yourself from flu also protects the people around you who are more vulnerable to serious flu illness.
Flu vaccination can help protect people who are at greater risk of getting seriously ill from flu, like older adults, people with chronic health conditions and young children (especially infants younger than 6 months old who are too young to get vaccinated).
Flu vaccination also may make your illness milder if you do get sick.
A: Flu vaccines cause antibodies to develop in the body about two weeks after vaccination. These antibodies provide protection against infection with the viruses that are in the vaccine.
A: Everyone aged 6 months and older should be vaccinated against the flu every year.
There are a few groups of people that should not receive the flu vaccine. These include:
- Children younger than 6 months. They are too young to get a flu shot.
- People with severe, life-threatening allergies to flu vaccine or any ingredient in the vaccine. This might include gelatin, antibiotics, or other ingredients.
A: People should begin getting vaccinated soon after flu vaccine becomes available, ideally by October, to ensure that as many people as possible are protected before flu season begins.
It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body and provide protection against the flu.
A: No, this is a common myth.
The flu vaccine works by tricking your body into making antibodies to fight off the flu if you come in contact with the virus. While your body is working to make these antibodies, you may experience mild symptoms that may resemble the flu such as an achy body, a sore arm where the shot was given or a sore throat and runny nose if the nasal spray was given.
These symptoms are usually mild and only last 1-2 days.
A: Get plenty of rest.
Wash your hands often and practice good hygiene.
Stay home from work or school if you suspect you may be sick to keep from spreading the flu.
If you do get the flu there are oral antivirals available that can help lessen the length and severity of the flu.
A: Stop in and see your Meijer Pharmacist. We can vaccinate you and your family* anytime the pharmacy is open, no need to make an appointment!
