Here’s how influenza can hurt your family….
Influenza can make you, your children, or your parents really sick.
Influenza usually comes on suddenly. Symptoms can include high fever, chills, headaches, exhaustion, sore throat, cough and all-over body aches. Some people say, “It felt like a truck hit me!” Symptoms can also be mild. Regardless, when influenza strikes your family, the result is lost time from work and school.
Influenza spreads easily from person to person
An infected person can spread influenza when they cough, sneeze or just talk near others. They can also spread it by touching or sneezing on an object that someone else touches later. An infected person doesn’t have to feel sick to be contagious: they can spread influenza to others when they feel well- before their symptoms have begun.
Influenza and it’s complications can be serious that they can put you, your children, or your parents in the hospital-or lead to death.
Each year, more then 200,000 people are hospitalized in the U.S from influenza and it’s complications. 36,000 die, including many children. The people who have the highest probability of being hospitalized and of dying are infants, young children, older adults and people of all ages who have medical conditions such as heart or lung disease. But remember, it’s not only the youngest, oldest, or the sickest who die: every year influenza kills people who were otherwise healthy.
Influenza can be a very serious disease for you, your family, and friends-but can all be protected by getting vaccinated.
There’s no substitute for yearly vaccination in protecting the people you love from influenza. Either type of influenza vaccine (the “shot” or nasal spray) will help keep you and your loved ones safe from a potentially deadly disease. Get vaccinated every year, and make sure your children and your parents are vaccinated, too.
