Influenza (seasonal flu) Vaccine

Infuenza is a respiratory virus that causes seasonal flu each year during the winter months. It is characterized by fever, chills, body aches, headache, runny nose, cough and occasional diarrhea. It is primarily an infection of the respiratory tract (breathing tubes and lungs). In some persons, complications of influenza can be severe, which can include pneumonia and death. All adolescents and adults are recommended to receive a flu vaccine each year. Influenza viruses change from year to year; therefore, a new shot must be created each year, and annual vaccination is necessary.

Influenza vaccine should be considered by people in the following groups:

  • Kids from the age of 6 months to 19 years
  • Seniors over the age of 50
  • Individuals with certain chronic medical conditions
  • Nursing home residents
  • Health care workers and anyone that encounters high-risk individuals
  • Flu shots are available to anyone looking to reduce their chances of becoming ill.
