Getting a flu shot ¹each year is the best thing you can do to protect yourself, your family, and your community. Children, adults over 65, and people with chronic conditions such as asthma are at a higher risk of flu complications. Vaccination is also important for women who are pregnant or who recently had a baby.
Flu viruses evolve fast, so last year’s vaccine may not protect you from this year’s viruses. Necesita la vacuna contra el flu de este año para evitar contagiarse del flu estacional de esta temporada. For more information about the flu, visit our flu resources.
1If you have severe, life-threatening allergies to flu vaccine or any ingredient in the vaccine, such as gelatin, antibiotics, or other ingredients, or have ever had Guillain-Barré syndrome, you should not get the flu shot. Please talk to your doctor if you have questions.
