If you get the flu vaccine (say: vak-seen), or shot, it will protect you from getting a bad case of the flu. You either won't get the flu at all, or if you do get it, you will have only mild symptoms and you should get better pretty quickly. Like other shots, a flu shot is given using a needle. There's also a nasal mist flu vaccine, which is a spray that's squirted up your nose.

Whichever one you get, you need to get a new vaccine every year. Why? Because the flu virus changes every year and the vaccine is specially created to fight the viruses that are going to be a problem that year.

The other medications for flu are Relenza and Zanamivir. You can find more information on these drugs at Avian Flu Relenza (http://www.drugdelivery.ca/s33713-s-RELENZA.aspx)

Yeah, the shots are even quite nutritious and promote excellent anabolic features.
