about the flu vaccine. That’s false, the flu shot won’t give you the flu there’s no live influenza virus in the vaccine. That’s also false, if you’re pregnant you
may be more susceptible to complications of the flu. False, healthy people can get
the flu and they can also pass on the flu to other people around them who may
be more susceptible to complications of the flu. False, you can also wash your hands more frequently you can cover your cough and you can stay away from work or school
if you’re sick. Every year the circulating flu strain may change and as a result we should get the flu shot every year. That’s false seniors and
children are actually at higher risk for complications to the flu and they should certainly get the flu shot
