Flu Shot Pros and Cons

The flu has been around for hundreds of years. It has a lethal history, taking 1000s of lives.

To prevent that, men of science have worked to produce flu vaccines to help protect people from the possible harmful results of a influenza infection. Only, are these vaccines all they’re cracked up to be?

What Is Influenza?

It’s a virus. And, from what we know about viruses, there’s no remedy for them. The answer rests in addressing the symptoms to bring down the time it takes for the disease to run its path.

It helps to be healthy yet even if you’re not in optimum condition, you will be able to still lower your risk of dangerous complications from the influenza.

The Controversy: Pros of Getting a Flu Shot

People are all for not contracting the flu, only not so hot on the thought of the vaccine. 1st of all, like doctors will assure you: You cannot catch the influenza by accepting the vaccine. The flu shot is contrived to create antibodies in the body for as many strains of the influenza as it’s developed for. To that conclusion, the vaccine is comprised of defunct, inactivated virus.

By expanding your antibodies, the immune system is applying armor to battle a likely flu invasion. It may step-up your chances of survival and a shorter period of sickness. While the shot isn’t a hundred percent effective against the influenza, it does step-up your chances of NOT catching it by about seventy percent. That’s good news for folks who are at larger hazard for the disease:

* The elderly
* Immune-compromised persons
* Kids
* Those with diabetes
* Those with asthma
* Folks who attend a sick person

These groups bear a heavier risk of contracting the flu due to their age and environs. Kids (for example those in daycares) are exposed constantly to other children who might be ill, thereby accelerating their chances of catching something. Elderly people bear more fragile immune systems and are more sluggish to recuperate from the influenza if they acquire it.

Cons of Getting a Flu Shot

With all of the info that suggests that the flu shot is beneficial, there’s no evidence that you’ll be prevented from catching the disease. As a matter of fact, you might still get it. A fit person who’s consuming a well-balanced diet may lower the duration of the flu, should they get it, just as well as somebody who has accepted the shot.

Some folks are concerned with the ingredients in the flu shot. Many contain thimerosal, a chemical compound that contains mercury. Mercury at high levels may bear upon brain chemistry. While the levels in the flu vaccine are not going to bring about this effect, having a shot annually might put you at larger risk.

Shots can bring forth localized injection site reactions. You may experience redness, puffiness, itchiness and soreness at the site. Many would prefer to forgo that if they can.
