Get your flu shots!
Getting the flu shot is the best way to prevent the flu. The Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone 6 months
or older. Some people may require two doses of the seasonal flu shot. Please contact
your doctor for more information.
Flu shots are most important for people at high risk and their close contacts. High
risk people include:
- Pregnant women
- Children younger than 5, but especially children younger than 2 years old
- Adults 65 years of age and older
- People with chronic medical conditions, such as asthma, diabetes, obesity or heart
- People who have a weakened immune system, such as from medications or HIV infection
