Flu shot FAQs.
Flu shots save lives. For healthy people, the flu may be a nuisance, so the shot can reduce your risk of getting ill and losing time from work or school. If you have health issues, the shot can actually reduce your risk for more serious complications such as pneumonia, hospitalization, and death. In addition, by reducing your risk you can help prevent the spread of flu to other vulnerable people who may be at risk for complications, such as babies and the elderly.
In short, it's best to get your flu shot before flu season begins and definitely before it peaks in the winter months (between December and February). Experts recommend that people get their flu shot between September and October since the virus can start circulating in late fall.
Everyone 6 months and older should get the flu vaccine, especially those who are at high risk of developing complications from the flu. If you are not feeling well, have an allergy to the vaccine, or ever had Guillain-Barre syndrome, you should talk to your doctor about getting the flu shot. Not only does the flu vaccine help prevent widespread illness and limits community spread, but it also protects our most vulnerable populations from illness.
