One thought on “How effective is the flu shot for seniors?

    It’s best to get vaccinated before the flu begins to spread in your community. The flu vaccine is not 100% effective, but it’s still the best way to prevent the flu, according to the CDC. The regular flu vaccine seems to be less effective in seniors than it’s in younger adults. However, studies have found the high-dose senior flu shot better protects older adults against the flu when compared with the standard flu vaccine. Several locations offer senior flu shots, including doctor’s offices, local health departments, and pharmacies. It takes about two weeks for antibodies to develop after getting the flu shot.
