Debunking Flu Vaccine Myths
It is that time of year again!
Many people skip getting the flu vaccine because they have gotten incorrect information. Because of this, I’m going to beak down three popular myths for you.
“The Flu Vaccine will make me sick”

“If I get the Flu Vaccine, I won’t get sick this winter”
• Michigan H1N1
• Hong Kong H3N2
The Quadrivalent vaccine protects against 4 strains. It includes the same strains as the Trivalent vaccine, with the addition of a second type B (Phuket). These are the strains of respiratory flu that have been determined to be the most dangerous.
