Why is getting vaccinated so important?

Vaccination is the most effective way to stay healthy and avoid catching the flu. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older should receive an annual influenza vaccination. Children 6 months through 8 years may need two doses depending on previous flu vaccine history, so it is important to talk to your provider. A seasonal flu shot  is especially recommended for people with chronic medical conditions, pregnant women, people living or caring for babies six months and younger or people who are unable to be vaccinated because of health reasons and all health care workers.

Where can I get vaccinated?

Flu vaccine is available from health care providers, local health departments and many pharmacies. To find a flu shot provider near you, visit or or call 1-800-SAFENET (1-800-723-3638).
