Who should get the flu shot?
Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine.  The vaccine information statement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) can be found here. It is especially important for people at high risk of developing flu-related complications to receive the flu vaccination. Vaccination is especially important for:

  • People 50 years and older

  • Children 6 months through 4 years old

  • Women who are pregnant during flu season

  • People with chronic medical conditions or weakened immune systems

  • People who live in nursing homes and other long-term care centers

  • Health care workers

  • People who live with or care for anyone at high risk for flu-related complications

I’m pregnant, why do I need a flu shot?
It’s very important for pregnant women to receive the flu shot to protect themselves and their babies. Changes to the body and immune system during pregnancy make women more at risk for severe flu illness. The flu vaccine is safe during pregnancy.  

I have a chronic condition, is it safe for me to get the flu shot? 
Yes. The flu shot is very safe for people with chronic conditions, and is the best defense against complications that could make health conditions worse. People with chronic conditions, including: asthma, diabetes, heart disease, chronic lung disease, or those with weakened immune systems due to disease such as HIV/AIDs or cancer are at greater risk of severe flu illness or complications.
