Every fall a new flu shot is released to the public in order to attempt to control what could be a potentially huge outbreak. Fortunately most years the flu vaccine is relatively successful and over the past few years they’ve been getting better and better. Obviously improving flu shots is absolutely great news but even better is the fact that more and more people are reportedly getting flu shots.
According to preliminary data this year flu shots have been in much higher demand than usual due to the general public accepting that they’re effective. Many medical experts feel that this is absolutely a step in the right direction because for many years people simply skipped their flu shots because they felt they weren’t effective.
Don’t worry though, just because demand is higher early in the season doesn’t mean it’ll be hard to find a flu shot. Flu vaccine production is at an all-time high and doctors say there will not be any risk of a shortage this flu season. Whether you’re worried about the flu or not it is absolutely good news that more and more people are beginning to be vaccinated and will likely continue to do so for years to come.
