For most people, the flu means a few days off work, school, runny nose and maybe a fever. These are very common symptoms along with a sore throat, chills, and fatigues. Usually, the flu goes away in a few days and patients feel better within a week or two.

However, to some certain people, the flu can be much more serious. Children, elders, and people with a compromised immune system are among people in the danger group, which means the flu can be much more severe to these individuals. Sometimes, without the right attention and care, they can face serious complications and sometimes, even death.

One of the best ways to prevent the flu and reduce the risk of lethality is to get a flu shot every year. This is highly recommended for people in the danger group. Getting a flu shot will not only help you carry on your days carefree but also minimize the chance of flu virus spread.
