Flu Vaccine Safety Information

Last updated 4 years ago

Doctors agree that one of the best ways to avoid the flu and slow the spread of the illness in a community is to administer the flu vaccine. However, some people have questions about the safety of the vaccine, in large part thanks to myths spread about the shot. Is it really safe to get a flu vaccine? This video explains more.

Hundreds of millions of people have gotten flu shots without any complications. The vaccine is carefully tested and monitored by the CDC and FDA before it is released for public use. All flu shot manufacturers must meet strict standards before their vaccines can be used.

The flu can be a medical emergency, but Englewood Community Hospital’s emergency room is here with the care you need when trouble strikes. For more information about our Englewood, FL hospital, please call (888) 658-1598.
