Flu vaccination is also known as the "flu shot". Influenza (flu) is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Every flu season is different, and influenza infection can affect people differently.
An annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to reduce the chances that you will get seasonal flu and lessen the chance that you will spread it to others.
There are two types of flu vaccine, the one that is given with a needle, usually in the arm; and the one that is given through a nasal spray (sometimes called LAIV for “Live Attenuated Influenza Vaccine”).
