Flu Season In India And the Importance of Getting a Flu Shot

  1. 1. Flu Season In India And the Importance of Getting a Flu Shot The flu season in India typically lasts from October to February. Although the length and severity of the condition may vary with each individual. There are certain individuals who get through this season without getting affected, but more likely you’ll see people coughing, sneezing and sniffling all through this season. The symptoms of flu or influenza usually include:  Coughing  Fever  Headache  Sore throat  Runny nose  Nose blockage Although flu isn’t a cause for much concern, its symptoms can keep you bedridden for weeks. Flu can also be dangerous to certain people like:  Pregnant women  Children between 6 months and 5 years of age  People 18 and under who receive aspirin therapy  People over 50  Anyone with chronic medical conditions  People whose body mass index is 40 or higher
  2. 2. So, it’s better to be vaccinated against this seasonal virus every year. A flu shot is a vaccine which prompts your immune system to produce antibodies. In turn, these antibodies help the body fight off the types of flu virus that are present in the vaccine. After receiving the flu shot it takes about two weeks for these antibodies to fully develop. Flu shots should ideally be taken before October, but can also be taken from July to September. The flu shot should be taken every year because the virus changes and adapts every year, which is one of the reasons it is so widespread and difficult to avoid. New vaccines are created every year to keep up with the rapidly changing virus. As to the availability of the flu shot, it is available in almost all reputable hospitals and clinics, but it is always better to get a flu shot from the best hospital in your vicinity. There are top super-specialty hospitals in Gurgaon and Delhi NCR, hospitals in Patna, and hospitals in Darbhanga which run a campaign for flu vaccination in the flu season, where you can get yourself and your family members vaccinated.
