FL05 Flu Q and A – Flu Vaccine – How It Works and Side Effects

This is the second of two lessons covering questions and answers regarding the flu vaccine in Spanish. It is an updated lesson from our previous Q&A on the Flu. In this second audio lesson on the flu vaccine, we will discuss how the vaccine works and its common side effects. By the time we are done, you should feel confident when talking about vaccinations in Spanish.
