The History Of the Flu Vaccine
The flu is a respiratory virus that is extremely contagious. Infection settles into the nose, throat and lungs. The illness and symptoms it brings with it can range in severity from mild to severe, even resulting in death. Common symptoms include:
- Muscle aches
- Runny nose
- Sore throat
In 1918, there was a flu pandemic that lasted until 1920, causing hundreds of thousands of deaths in the United States and millions of deaths worldwide. Attempts to develop a flu vaccine began. Now, scientists track the evolution of the flu virus and create a vaccine each year, making predictions about how the virus will evolve from year to year.
The CDC recommends that anyone 6 months or older get an annual flu vaccine, usually in September or October, prior to the onset of the flu season. Side effects of the flu vaccine are rare, but they can and do occur. In Some instances, reactions to the flu vaccine can be serious.
