The flu vaccine is also recommended for health care
workers and anyone who lives or works with a person who is at higher risk of
problems from the flu. Your doctor can help you decide if the flu vaccine is a
good choice for you.
The vaccine usually prevents most cases of
the flu. But even if you do get the flu after you've had the vaccine, your
symptoms will be milder and you'll have less chance of problems from the flu.
You cannot get the flu from the flu vaccine.
