    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation

Therefore, it is true that the best time for flu vaccination is from October through November, but getting it in December and January is not too late.

    Flu vaccination for health care workers is NOT a recommendation because unvaccinated workers are some of the healthiest individuals.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because flu vaccination for healthcare workers is actually recommended. The reason for this recommendation is that healthcare workers are at a higher risk of being exposed to the flu virus due to their close contact with patients. By getting vaccinated, healthcare workers can protect themselves from getting infected and also prevent the spread of the flu to vulnerable patients. Therefore, it is important for healthcare workers to get vaccinated to ensure the safety and well-being of both themselves and their patients.

    People 65 years or older are less at risk for developing complications from flu.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because people who are 65 years or older are actually at a higher risk for developing complications from the flu. As people age, their immune systems weaken, making it harder for them to fight off infections like the flu. Older adults are more likely to experience severe symptoms, hospitalization, and even death as a result of the flu. Therefore, it is important for older individuals to get vaccinated and take preventative measures to reduce their risk of complications from the flu.
