Ten Facts About the Flu Vaccine

November 14, 20231 min read

With the first cases of the flu (influenza) virus being reported in Colorado this season, it’s more important than ever to get the vaccine for you and your children. Read on for some quick facts about the vaccine.

1. The flu vaccine is recommended for everyone over the age of 6 months.

2 There are two options for the flu vaccine: the inactivated vaccine, given as a shot, or the live-attenuated vaccine, given as a nasal spray. These are considered equally effective. The nasal spray is approved for children over age 2.

3. This year, the flu vaccine covers four influenza strains: two influenza A and two influenza B strains.

4. Children between 6 months and 8 years old who have never received the flu vaccine require two doses of the vaccine, given at least 4 weeks apart.

5. The flu vaccine is especially important for children under the age of 5 or with chronic health issues such as asthma, heart disease, or diabetes, as they are at higher risk for complications from the flu.

6. It is safe to receive the flu vaccine at the same time as other vaccines.

7. Children with egg allergies can receive the flu vaccine.

8. Children with COVID-19 can still get a flu vaccine after they have recovered from their illness.

9. The flu vaccine does not cause the flu.

10. Side effects from the flu vaccine include fever, fatigue, and redness or soreness at the site of injection.

Testimonials

I got a call from Susan at the Brighton Buzz asking if I wanted to advertise n the next issue. My response was that I either needed to keep my ad running or fold the business.

About 90% of the calls that I receive include a comment like, ”I saw your ad in the Brighton Buzz….

The majority of my calls take me inside a home, it is not unusual for somebody to pick up a copy of the Buzz and say they found me right there. The Buzz that they show me is frequently not the latest issue. The Buzz has great holding power! At the same time, I can always tell when The Buzz has hit mailboxes. My phone starts ringing. A lot of people seem to look through it right away.

The cost per home is low, the cost per response is reasonable. Am I going to continue to advertise in the Brighton Buzz? You can count on it!
