Nobody’s exempted from getting the flu. When the virus is around you and most especially when it’s the flu season, you might just get it.
Doctors say those who are not prone to getting it should not feel too confident because the virus can still strike you in the future. And when it enters your body, it can result in a few days of bed rest and medication or it could also make you seriously ill requiring hospitalization.
For this reason, medical experts recommend that children and adults get the flu shot as early as possible to provide them immunity throughout the flu season. More importantly, pregnant women, young children and the elderly should get vaccinated.
