This year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending flu vaccination for everyone 6 months of age and older. It’s especially important for some people to get vaccinated. Those people include the following:
- People who are at high risk of developing serious complications like pneumonia if they get sick with the flu. This includes:
- People who have certain medical conditions, including asthma, diabetes and chronic lung disease.
- Pregnant women
- People 65 years and older
- People who live with or care for others who are at high risk of developing serious complications. This includes:
- Household contacts and caregivers of people with certain medical conditions, including asthma, diabetes and chronic lung disease
Life can get pretty hectic sometimes. Whether it's school, work, or your social life, you probably think you have other, more important things to do than get vaccinated against the flu. Fortunately, there's a quick and easy way for you to protect yourself, and to keep from spreading the flu to friends and family. Get a flu vaccine. One shot will help protect you against the three strains of virus predicted to cause illness this season.
The few minutes it will take you to get a flu vaccine is much shorter than the days you might have to take off from school, work, or both, if you get sick with the flu. It takes about two weeks to build immunity against the flu, so it's important to act now, in order to be fully protected by the time flu outbreaks begin. By immunizing yourself against the flu, you'll help protect your family, friends, classmates, and co-workers, too.
