Have you gotten your flu shot yet? There are a few flu vaccine options out there this year. There’s the shot and the nasal mist, but there are also different vaccines.
There’s the trivalent, quadrivalent and the high dose. The high dose is meant for people 65 and older. The trivalent and quadrivalent are meant for everyone. The difference is the trivalent protects against three types of the flu and the quadrivalent protects against four.
James Corbett the immunization coordinator for Eastern Idaho Public Health says everyone should get vaccinated, even if you don’t have symptoms you can still be a carrier.
