A new flu season is upon us, and that means new strains of the illness. Flu season runs from early October through the end of May and, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the illness can affect healthy people, children and the elderly.
The CDC recommends that anyone over the age of six months get vaccinated. Even though most people don't get sick until January or February, it's never too early to get a shot. The CDC said by getting the shot earlier in the flu season, you'll give your body a chance to build up a stronger immunity to the illness and maintain healthy living.
Typically, the CDC offers a one-for-all vaccine. However, because a wide variety of variables can affect which strain(s) an individual comes in contact with, the CDC decided to offer a variety of vaccination choices.
CDC flu vaccination options
Since the flu mutates into new strains every year, the CDC is offering a shot that will protect against four of them. By being vaccinated for four strains, you'll have a better chance of staying healthy through flu season.
If you have an allergy to eggs, you've probably never received a flu shot because the vaccine is grown in egg laboratories. However, the CDC decided to offer an egg-free option this year to give more people the opportunity to get inoculated.
It doesn't matter how old you are, some people are simply afraid of needles. A typical flu shot goes deep into the skin to deliver the vaccine into the muscle. Now there are options with smaller needles that deliver the shot just underneath the skin. For those who really can't stand needles, there's also a nasal spray vaccine.
