Why Should I Get Vaccinated for Influenza?
The influenza virus, though not majorly harmful, has the ability to spread rapidly and affect anyone from little ones to grown ups and adults. In rare cases, it can even affect healthier people, deteriorate their health, and cause death.
Getting a vaccine shot helps enhance immunity against the virus and protects you from getting an infection. This, in turn, also protects others around you from catching the virus such as those that’s not eligible for vaccination. A fully-vaccinated community can prove more effective at containing the spread.
When is the Right Time to Get Vaccinated?
Getting a yearly vaccination is always a good idea. That’s because the influenza virus has the tendency to mutate in several different ways, which also brings further changes to the vaccine itself.
The Australian Government’s Department of Health recommends people to get vaccinated in Autumn, before the influenza season peaks during winter. However, one can always vaccinate themselves when the need arises.
Will I Experience any Side Effects?
You could feel slight tenderness, pain, or swelling near the injected area. As the vaccine starts showing its effects, you may also experience fever, fatigue and minor body aches. However, these will go away in a few days.
For more information regarding vaccinations, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our receptionist.
