It’s that time of year, where the flu is on the rise. To get a shot or not? Does the the flu shot give you the flu? The truth is the shot is filled with dead flu cells, to help your body build up antibodies.
Now, it is true that the shot has a reaction to a small percentage that will get flu symptoms for 24-48 hours. If you get symptoms, call your doctor or pharmacist to see what you can take to alleviate those symptoms.
Feeling those symptoms is a good reminder of why you got the flu shot in the first place.
Whether you have a reaction or not, its important to keep that immune system healthy; drink plenty of fluids and its good to add in some electrolytes.
Here’s wishing us all, a healthy flu season!
