How Well Does the Flu Vaccine Work?
CDC conducts studies each year to determine how well the influenza (flu) vaccine protects against flu illness. How well the flu vaccine works (or its ability to prevent flu illness) can range widely from season to season, depending on who is being vaccinated and the match between the circulating flu viruses and the vaccine.
Most people with #flu wont need to see a doctor, but it is important to seek care early if you are very sick, at high risk of serious flu complications and develop flu symptoms, or if you have certain emergency warning signs, such as difficulty breathing. https://go.usa.gov/xn6wY
