As always, health care officials are recommending a flu shot vaccine for everyone, especially the elderly, as we approach another flu season.

According to the CDC, everyone who is at least 6 months of age should get a flu vaccine this season. This recommendation has been in place since February 24, 2010 when CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) voted for “universal” flu vaccination in the United States to expand protection against the flu to more people.

While everyone should get a flu vaccine this season, 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.
    • People who live with or care for others who are at high risk of developing serious complications (see list above).
      • Household contacts and caregivers of people with certain medical conditions including asthma, diabetes, and chronic lung disease.
      • Household contacts and caregivers of infants less than 6 months old.
      • Health care personnel

Also, to address the number one myth associated with the flu vaccine: You cannot get the flu from a flu shot. The risk of a flu shot causing serious harm or death is extremely small. However, a vaccine, like any medicine, may rarely cause serious problems, such as severe allergic reactions. Almost all people who get influenza vaccine have no serious problems from it.
