Topic: The Flu Shot

Humans have been plagued by disease throughout history and just about everyone has

experienced the flu or common cold at some point in time. During your life, you will

probably have more cold or flu infections than any other type of illness. Humans have

an amazing immune system that helps them fight foreign invaders, but sometimes the

way your body fights these invaders causes unpleasant side effects that are often

treated with over-the-counter medications.

You can learn more about the common cold at the following resource:
