You need to get this particular vaccination annually throughout your life. According to the CDC, influenza is highly contagious and infects the nose, throat and lungs. This disease spreads through droplets when a person who is infected coughs and sneezes.
Symptoms include a sudden high fever, chills, dry cough, headache, runny nose, sore throat, muscle and joint pain, and extreme fatigue that can last several weeks. This particular disease can be mild or severe and can lead to hospitalization and death.
