Planning to Blow Off That Flu Shot? Think Again

Just thinking about getting a flu shot makes my arm sore. Receiving an influenza vaccination isn’t pleasant, and its not 100 percent effective, but the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and infectious-disease experts recommend that everyone over 6 months old get one, with only a few exceptions. And now is the time. “This is absolutely the best time to get your vaccination,” Andrew Pekosz, PhD, associate professor of microbiology and immunology at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine tells Yahoo Shine. It takes about two weeks for the body to develop maximum immunity, and he warns, “We’ve already seen cases positively diagnosed.”  http://shine.yahoo.com/healthy-living/planning-blow-off-flu-shot-think-again-205700559.html#!lcdEC
