Hispanics Urged to Get Flu Vaccine
The first and most important step to protect against flu is to get vaccinated, according to the CDC’s Spanish-language flu website.
The vaccine reduces one’s risk of illness, hospitalization, or even death and can prevent the spread of the virus to loved ones.
There is good news: More Hispanic children, 43 percent, have been vaccinated this year than black children at 36 percent or white children at 34 percent, UPI reports.
