Optimizing Your Health and Protecting Your Community with a Flu Shot

The flu season is always a worrying time. How can we best protect ourselves and our communities from the threat of influenza? While there is talk of social distancing, the most effective way to combat the flu is to get a flu shot. Clinical trials have shown that vaccinated individuals are significantly less at risk of catching the flu or experiencing severe symptoms, and it can also reduce the risk of complications. 


The benefits of flu shots can be seen in both healthy people and those at risk of developing complications from the flu. For adults and children over the age of six months, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone get a flu shot every season. Vaccination greatly reduces the risk of developing severe symptoms if you do get the flu, and can even reduce the risk of hospitalizations and too much illness to handle at home.


In particular, for high-risk populations, including the elderly, people with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women, flu shots are essential for their protection. In addition, it’s important to understand that you can still get sick even if you have been vaccinated. However, the flu shot will reduce the severity and help reduce the risk of complications with the virus. In rare cases, some people may experience a fever or body aches after the vaccine, but these are mild reactions to consider with the potentially serious consequences of the flu. 


At Miami Clinical Research, we conduct clinical trials and medical research to uncover the mechanisms behind how flu shots protect us. We are always at the forefront of flu research and actively engaged in expanding awareness of influenza’s impact on various communities. 


We are dedicated to helping the pharmaceutical industry develop the world’s most effective vaccines for the flu virus. Compiling data from previous research and unveiling novel insights is central to our efforts of creating sound strategies to teach and recommend flu vaccines. Every year Miami Clinical Research expands its data collection and offers unique solutions to help optimize the production process and widen the reach of safe flu shots. 


By providing crucial insights into the effectiveness of flu shots and the potential impact on reducing the severity and complications, researchers have and continue to shape how we can protect ourselves and our communities from the flu. With the larger goal of learning about the impact of flu shots, Miami Clinical Research works intimately with the pharmaceutical industry to help global communities ravaged from the flu.
