Who needs a flu vaccine?

Almost everyone. The CDC recommends that anyone 6 months of age and older get vaccinated, particularly people who are at a high risk for flu complications. This includes people 65 years and older, young children and people with chronic conditions such as asthma or heart disease. Individuals who care for or live with these high-risk populations also should get vaccinated.

When Should You Get the Flu Vaccine?

Flu is most common in the fall and winter. For most people, September – October is a good time to get the vaccine, though children and people in their third trimester of pregnancy may want to get it earlier.
