Should you or should you not get a flu shot? It’s a personal decision that you face every year. Doctor’s recommendations and advertising claims at every drugstore lead many to believe that the vaccine will prevent you from getting sick this flu season. However, the CDC website reports: Influenza vaccine effectiveness (VE) can vary from year to year and among different age and risk groups AND there are plenty of other cold and virus strains going around for which there are no vaccines. Therefore, regardless of whether or not you choose to get a flu shot this year, it is most important to make lifestyle changes to increase your chances of staying healthy. These include, consistently getting good quality sleep and managing stress levels, as well as regularly eating immune boosting food for preventative medicine.
