The flu vaccine is recommended for everyone 6 months and older, including pregnant women. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for your body to develop protection against the flu. Every flu season is unique, and influenza infection can affect people differently. Millions of people get the flu every year, hundreds of thousands of people are hospitalized and thousands or tens of thousands of people die from flu-related causes every year. Most people who get flu will recover in a few days to less than two weeks, but some people will develop serious flu complications. An annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to help protect against flu.
