The lowdown on flu vaccines

6 years ago

Cold and flu season is rapidly approaching - and just like every fall, you can expect another big push for flu vaccines.

Each year, the U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend an influenza vaccine of a particular strain of flu. According to the CDC, “Viruses in the vaccine change each year based on international surveillance and scientists’ estimations about which types and strains of viruses will circulate in a given year.” 1

 In other words, the government recommends all Americans to get a yearly shot formulated on a scientific guess.

To learn more about the production process of flu vaccines, as well as the different varieties and fairly recent popularity of flu shots, visit Accidentally Green.
