Who should get influenza vaccine?
All people 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine. Vaccination is especially important for people at higher risk of severe influenza and their close contacts, including healthcare personnel and close contacts of children younger than 6 months. Get the vaccine as soon as it is available. This should provide protection if the flu season comes early. Influenza(Flu) is a contagious disease. It is caused by the influenza virus, which can be spread by coughing, sneezing or nasal secretions. By getting the flu vaccine you can protect yourself from influenza and may also avoid spreading influenza to others. Adults and older children need one dose of influenza vaccine each year but some children younger than 9 yrs of age need two doses to be protected. Ask your provider. Influenza vaccine may be given at the same time as other vaccines, including pneumococcal vaccine.
