The 2018 - 2019 Flu Season is Upon Us
Last year we experienced one of the deadliest Flu seasons in decades with an estimated 80,000 American deaths due to the illness. This was the highest number of flu-related deaths in at least four decades, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The 2018 - 2017 Flu season officially ended in Spring 2018.
The 2018 - 2019 Flu season has already officially started and there is no way to accurately predict how deadly it will be. The best way to prevent the Flu is to get a Flu shot at a local drugstore, clinic, or doctor’s office. Even though the flu vaccine is not 100 percent effective, doctors still recommend it because it makes illnesses less severe and has a proven track record of saving lives on an annual basis.
Getting a flu shot protects yourself and the people around you who might have a weak or weakened immune system.
Communicating the importance of a Flu shot is beneficial to both patients and healthcare organizations as it provides helpful information while establishing leadership within the industry.
