Who Should Get a Flu Shot?
Just about everyone (with very rare exception) should receive an annual flu shot, including young, healthy adults. Getting vaccinated is by far the best way to protect your health against the seasonal influenza virus and help slow its spread throughout the community. While it’s still possible (albeit improbable) to catch the flu after receiving a vaccine, your symptoms will likely be much less severe than if you had not been vaccinated at all.
It’s especially important to receive an annual flu shot and protect your health if you:
- Are older than 65
- Have a chronic health condition, such as heart disease, kidney disease, asthma, or diabetes
- Are pregnant or have recently given birth
- Are obese
- Live in a long-term care facility, such as an assisted living home or rehabilitation center
