It’s not too late for your flu shot
Fri, Nov 3, 2017
It’s important you get your flu shot every year.
“The flu isn’t like the common cold. Hundreds of thousands are hospitalized each year because of it. It’s dangerous for healthy people, and more dangerous for those with health problems such as a weakened immune system,” says Dr. Laura Vogel-Schwartz, an emergency medicine physician with BayCare Clinic. She sees patients in Two Rivers, Green Bay, and Oshkosh.
Getting vaccinated every year is important because your body’s immune response from flu shots declines over time and the strains of flu viruses are constantly changing, Vogel-Schwartz says.
