Flu Shot Myths
1. Flu shots will give you the flu.
FALSE – The vaccine contains an inactive flu virus. It is dead and cannot infect you.
2. Vaccines are dangerous.
FALSE – Vaccines are, arguably, the greatest medical advance in history. They’ve prevented more illness and death than any other treatment.
3. It’s too late in the season to get a flu shot.
FALSE – There are plenty of vaccines left, and the flu stays around through March, so you still have plenty of time to protect yourself.
4. I got the vaccine last year, so I am protected.
FALSE – Each year there are new strains of the flu virus, and the vaccine needs to change to keep up.
