Flu season is just around the corner! Have you thought about getting vaccinated?

Flu season is just around the corner. Like every year, we need to prepare ourselves for this period. We need to take all the necessary precautions to protect our health and that of our family. Because, yes, the risk of contracting contagious diseases increases during this period. Among them, we’re all familiar with the flu.

Flu and high season

In Canada, the flu season generally runs from December to April. However, we can contract this respiratory virus all year round. The risks are all the greater during the holiday season. As a result, you’re more likely to come into contact with people with respiratory viruses.

And yet everyone wants to enjoy these family moments without constraints. We’ll leave aside the various health precautions.

The flu virus is transmitted through secretions from the nose and throat. In other words, a person who coughs or sneezes can infect you. You can also catch the disease by touching a contaminated object.

The flu vaccine

Unlike the common cold, influenza is a contagious respiratory infection. It causes symptoms of varying severity. These include fever, cough, aches and pains, and throat irritation. We can also experience aches and pains and even intense fatigue. And for several days.

Influenza can even lead to hospitalization. This occurs mainly in the elderly. Fortunately, there are now flu vaccines that protect us effectively. We can enjoy them from the age of 6 months. Unless contraindicated, of course.
