Do I need a flu vaccine every year?

Up to 20% of Americans get the flu each year, and that percentage is even higher during some seasons of the year. Though you can’t prevent every case of the flu, you can dramatically reduce your risk or lessen the severity of the flu by getting regular flu shots at Denver Wellness & Aesthetics Center, Michael Young, MD, and the team at the Littleton, Colorado office offer flexible scheduling for flu shot appointments. You can either request an appointment online or call the office to book a visit for your flu vaccine.

How do flu immunizations work?


The flu is a viral respiratory infection that tends to be at its peak during colder winter months, although you can certainly get the flu anytime throughout the year. Aside from washing your hands regularly, staying hydrated, and avoiding others who are infected with the flu, the best way to protect yourself is to get a flu immunization (flu shot).

These injections work by triggering the development of antibodies in your body. As your flu-fighting antibodies build up, if the flu virus enters your body, your immune system should be strong enough to fight it off. Or if you do become sick with the flu after getting a flu shot, chances are, it won’t be as severe as it could’ve been.

Why should I get a flu shot?


Every year, tens of thousands of Americans are hospitalized for severe flu symptoms. Not only does the flu virus attack healthy adults, but you can also become a carrier and get others sick even if you don’t develop severe flu issues. Though it’s recommended to get a flu immunization every year, it’s especially important if you’re:

• Pregnant or trying to become pregnant
• Over the age of 65 or under the age of 5
• Asthmatic or have a weakened immune system

Since your immune system might not be as strong as it should be if you’re overweight or obese, it’s important to get flu shots if these circumstances apply to you, too.

Do I need a flu vaccine every year?


Yes. Just because you got a flu shot last year doesn’t mean you can skip it this year. Each year, the flu virus evolves and changes, so last year’s immunization won’t be effective against this year’s flu strain.

Generally, Dr. Young at Denver Wellness recommends getting your flu vaccine early on in the fall months, such as September or October. This gives your immune system ample time to strengthen and prepare for this year’s harsh flu season since flu immunizations can take about two weeks to take full effect.
