If you’re on the fence about getting a flu shot, you’re not alone. One of the reasons people choose not to get a flu shot each year is because they believe it is not effective. The flu virus changes from season to season, this sometimes makes it challenging to guarantee its effectiveness. Recent CDC studies show a flu vaccine reduces the risk of getting the flu between 40%-60% among the overall population. The CDC measures a vaccines effectiveness by using the following criteria:

· Ability to prevent flu-related trips to the doctor

· Limiting the need for hospitalization

· Ability to protect against identified seasonal strains

· Ability to protect different age groups from flu

· Ability to protect special populations from flu
