Everyone ages 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine every year.

If you’re at higher risk of developing serious flu complications, flu vaccination is especially important. These groups include:

  • Adults 65 and older
  • Adults with certain chronic health conditions, such as asthma, heart disease, diabetes, and chronic kidney
  • Pregnant people
  • Children younger than 5 years, but especially those younger than 2 years old.
