Flu Vaccination Recommendations

The influenza vaccine is recommended annually for adults and children age 6 months and older. In addition to protecting individuals, when healthy people get vaccinated, it helps to decrease the spread of flu and protect people who are at high risk of serious complications from the flu. Although most people recover from the flu without any complications, certain people have a higher risk of serious complications related to the flu. These may include:

  • People age 65 and older
  • Children age 2 and under
  • People with compromised immune systems
  • Pregnant women

People with chronic medical conditions including diabetes, asthma, congestive heart failure, or lung disease are also at a greater risk of developing complications from the flu. Flu vaccinations are especially important for people in these high-risk categories.
