What is the Difference Between a Vaccine and an Immunization?

Vaccination is the process when a vaccine is administered to you by injecting a substance called antigen to stimulate the production of antibodies. Immunization is the immunity development through the antibody generation process, after taking the vaccine. A vaccine may provide immunity against one or several diseases.

How Long Does It Take to Get a Flu Vaccine?

Like taking any type of medication, the process of administering a flu vaccine is relatively short. Prior to performing the injection, the healthcare provider will discuss and review your medical history, including allergies. Once administered, the flu vaccine takes approximately two weeks to generate antibodies inside your body. This process helps your body to develop a positive immune response against the influenza virus infection. Therefore, healthcare providers recommend getting vaccinated before the flu season begins.

What is the Best Month to Get a Flu Shot?

Medical professionals recommend taking a flu shot about two weeks before the flu season starts. Ideally, the best time to take a flu shot is between early September and late October.
