Last Year The Flu Was Deadly - Get Vaccinated Now

And no, regardless of the myth that is so often heard at this time of the year, the flu vaccine doesn't cause those who take it to develop influenza. It typically takes about two weeks for the vaccine to build antibodies and begin offering protection.

In addition to the flu vaccine, other everyday preventive measures include washing your hands, covering your cough and cleaning and disinfecting high-touch surfaces and objects.

Flu vaccinations are no longer given to staff, faculty and retirees at Cornell Health.

As per this survey, it shows that young adults have been shown to have lower flu immunization rates compared to other ages, making it less accessible for students. She said it not only protects them against the illness but helps protect those who might not be able to get the vaccine. As health professionals we are concerned that there are myths prevalent in the African American and Latino communities, so we work closely with our community partners to inform and educate, and at some locations offer free flu shots directly to the community.
