    00:01 So let's wrap up this video series.

    00:03 Influenza is a viral infection of the respiratory system spread by droplets in the air or contaminated surfaces.

    00:11 Remember that the next time you're at Walmart or pumping gas? You cannot get the flu from the flu shot, but you may experience a side effect or have been exposed to the flu before you receive the flu shot.

    00:22 Flu vaccines, the flu shot is required yearly due to the continual mutation of the flu virus types A and B.

    00:30 Remember C doesn't even make the vaccine the FDA makes the final decision on the makeup of each year's license flu vaccine Based on review the data from around the world and the World Health Organization.

    00:42 The flu virus can be live attenuated weakened virus that is given in a nose spray or inactivated dead and and purified virus.

    00:53 So it's either live in attenuated and weekend or inactivated dead and purified.

    00:59 Quadrivalent vaccines contain vaccine for four strains of the flu and trivalent contain vaccine for three strains of the flu.

    01:07 I share with you which one I prefer personally.

    01:09 I always go for the quadrivalent.

    01:11 Now some examples of flu vaccine include inactivated influenza vaccine, recombinant influenza vaccine, and live attenuated virus.

    01:20 So immunocompromised patients should not receive the live attenuated virus.

    01:26 Patients with chronic illness younger than five years of age or older than 65 years of age are considered priorities to receive the vaccine due to the risk of Contracting influenza and the possible complications.

    01:40 Thank you for watching our video today.
