Defend against the flu - get vaccinated!

You can build your defenses against the flu by getting a vaccination. It is particularly important for adults age 50 and older to get a flu shot due to their susceptibility to life-threatening flu complications, such as pneumonia.

Who is at Risk

In addition to mature adults, persons at high risk for complications include:

  • Persons age 65 and older
  • Residents in long-term care facilities
  • Anyone with a chronic disease such as heart, lung and kidney disease; metabolic disease, such as diabetes; asthma; a weakened immune system, and anemia and other blood disorders
  • Children ages 6 months to 18 years
  • Pregnant women
  • Health care workers
  • Persons in close contact with those who are at high risk (including all household members)

If you have ever had a serious allergic reaction to eggs or to a previous dose of influenza vaccine, the flu vaccine is not recommended for you.

Make an appointment with your physician or provider to receive the flu vaccine. Also, you can receive a flu shot from a participating pharmacy.
