Do I need a flu shot?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that up to 20 percent of the American population is affected by the flu every year. That’s tens of millions of people! Every person over the age of six months should receive an annual flu shot, with very few exceptions for individuals who have egg allergies or are severely ill. It is particularly important to receive a flu shot if you:
- Are older than 50
- Are pregnant or have recently given birth
- Live in a nursing home, rehab facility, or work in a health care setting
- Have certain chronic conditions, such diabetes, asthma, or cardiovascular disease
