Stay healthy, get your shot
There are a lot of different kinds of flu virus. Each flu season’s vaccine targets the three or four specific strains of flu that sickened people the most in the last flu season. It’s a unique mix from season to season. That’s why you need to get a fresh shot once a year at the start of a new flu season. It is not possible to get the flu from the vaccine because it’s made with dead virus material — nothing live.
