The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone as the first and most important step in protecting against this serious disease. The 2010-2011 vaccine will protect against three different flue viruses: an H3N2 virus, an influenza B virus, and the H1N1 virus that caused so much illness last season. The protection you get from the vaccination will last throughout the flu season.
