Who Should Get Vaccinated This Season?
Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine every season. This recommendation has been in place since February 24, 2010 when CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) voted for “universal” flu vaccination in the United States to expand protection against the flu to more people.
Vaccination to prevent influenza is particularly important for people who are at high risk of serious complications from influenza.
If you are eligible to get a flu shot, get it. Some people can’t, for medical reasons. Don’t spread the flu to them.
