Why is there a need for a Flu Vaccination each year?

Flu is an annual event which tends to progress and change each year. To address this, new vaccines must be created annually to match the evolution of viruses that are present. The same germs and constituents which were present the previous year will have changed by the following year. For this reason, it is recommended to get a flu jab each year.
