For many, the flu means a fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose and other discomforts. But for some, like the elderly and chronically ill, the flu can lead to pneumonia.
According to a study published in the September 15-th issue of the Journal of Infectious Diseases, people at risk who were immunized against the flu were less likely to suffer health complications than people who were not.
Peak activity for the virus is between December and March.
So researchers suggest that people at a higher risk get their flu shot during October and November so their antibodies are at peak levels.
