Influenza (the “flu”) is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Every flu season is different, and influenza infection can affect people differently. Even healthy people can get very sick from the flu and spread it to others. “Flu season” in the United States can begin as early as October and last as late as May.

Who should get vaccinated this season?

Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine every season. Vaccination to prevent influenza is particularly important for people who are at high risk of serious complications from influenza.

Flu vaccination has important benefits. It can reduce flu illnesses, doctors’ visits, and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations.

Different flu vaccines are approved for use in different groups of people. Factors that can determine a person’s suitability for vaccination, or vaccination with a particular vaccine, include a person’s age, health (current and past) and any relevant allergies.

Flu shots are approved for use in pregnant women and people with chronic health conditions. There are flu shots that also are approved for use in people as young as 6 months of age and up.

More information is available at Who Should Get Vaccinated Against Influenza.

People who should talk to their doctor before getting the flu shot:
People who have an allergy to eggs or other vaccine ingredients
People who have ever had Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS)
People who are feeling ill
When should I get vaccinated?

Get vaccinated by the end of October, if possible. Children who need two doses of vaccine to be protected should start the vaccination process sooner. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body and provide protection against the flu.
