Dr. Michael Trias with SSM Health Dean Medical Group's east side clinic says health care providers feel strongly about people getting the flu vaccine every year to prevent and limit the impact in our community.
The virus kills thousands more every year, even healthy people.Trump has promoted the debunked autism-vaccine theory. Are we seeing a Trump effect?
Trias says that it's not true that someone will get the flu after getting the shot, as it cannot cause influenza. He says that some people are also worried about a potential link to autism. In recent years, several large scientific studies have determined that the preservative in the vaccine does not lead to serious neurological problems, including autism.
