There is more research that getting a flu shot can help in many ways. Researchers from the University of Minnesota found that college students who received the flu shot missed fewer classes than their peers who do not get a flu shot.

They also found that when students received a flu shot, they were able to keep up with their regular activities, tended to use antibiotics less frequently and had less doctor visits.
