With Fall in full swing, it’s never been more important to be prepared for Flu season. Especially for older individuals and those that are immunocompromised, it’s crucial to get a flu shot. In addition, according to reporting by the CDC, this year’s Flu season is coming earlier, and that,
“early flu activity has brought early flu-related hospitalizations, with the highest hospitalization rates in children and older adults. Levels of laboratory-confirmed flu activity continue to increase. They are highest in the southeast and south-central parts of the country. CDC also reported the first flu pediatric death of the 2022-2023 flu season.”
Getting a Flu shot is one of the best measures to prevent spreading the Flu and preventing potentially deadly complications, particularly for seniors.
At Special Touch Home Care, we are particularly passionate about getting the Flu shot this time of year. Our agents take of so many loved ones that are susceptible to complications with the virus. For that reason, we wanted to create a guide with reasons for seniors to get Flu shots to help both our caretakers and the loved ones our caretakers support. Please read all of our reasons below!
