Who should get vaccinated against Influenza?

Everyone who is at least 6 months of age should get a flu vaccine this season. It’s especially important for some people to get vaccinated.

Some groups are more likely to experience complications from the seasonal flu, including:

When should I get my flu shot?

Flu vaccination should begin soon after vaccine becomes available, ideally by October. However, as long as flu viruses are circulating, vaccination should continue to be offered throughout the flu season, even in January or later. While seasonal influenza outbreaks can happen as early as October, most of the time influenza activity peaks in January or later. Since it takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body that protect against influenza virus infection, it is best that people get vaccinated so they are protected before influenza begins spreading in their community.
