Sharp Advice: Benefits of Flu Shots

In this edition of Sharp Advice, Coach Sharp encourages people to get flu shots.  In America, 25 to 50 million people are affected by the flu virus every year from October through early spring.   According to Covenant's Dr. Chris Shanklin, the flu shot is your first line of defense from getting the flu.  

However, there are some things to consider before getting a flu shot. The only people that don't need a flu shot are the people that have severe allergies to eggs. If you have ever had a severe allergy to flu shot itself.  People that are moderately sick or ill at the time that they come to get a flu shot should probably wait till they get over that illness.  

If you're interested in getting a flu shot, keep in mind that there are many locations where you can get the vaccine.
