Why the need for Flu vaccinations?
It is widely accepted that a vaccine trains your body’s immune system to create specific antibodies, these antibodies are primed and ready to reduce future infection.
In today’s Covid-19 era, this year’s annual flu vaccination is said to be the most important to date. Dr Jaco Grobler from IVC Diagnostics mentions that flu vaccinations will play a vital role in helping the South African healthcare system to cope through the winter months, especially if there’s another spike in Covid-19 cases.
An opportunity to assist People at Increased Risk of Flu Complications
Flu vaccination is especially important for people with diabetes because they have a higher risk of developing serious complications from flu. Other at-risk individuals include adults 65 years and older, people with chronic health conditions, residents of nursing homes and chronic care facilities, children six months to five years of age, and pregnant women. Flu vaccines are changed each season, to keep up with changing strains, and immunity decreases over time, therefore annual vaccination is recommended by the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention.
