It's that time of year again. As the temperature drops and the leaves continue to fall... people start to sneeze, cough and hopefully stay home to get better.
Preventing Seasonal Flu with Vaccination
An annual seasonal flu vaccine (either the flu shot or the nasal spray flu vaccine) is the best way to reduce the chances that you will get seasonal flu and spread it to others. When more people get vaccinated against the flu, less flu can spread through that community.
Although the common cold and the flu share many similar symptoms, they are 2 different conditions. The symptoms of a cold develop slowly and can include sore throat, runny or stuffy nose (often with green- or yellow-colored discharge) and more. Flu symptoms usually appear suddenly and can include nausea, chills and sweats.
