It's best to get the flu vaccine early in the flu season.


Who Should Get Flu Vaccine?


According to the Centers for Disease Control, the vast majority of people 6 months and older should get the flu vaccine.

  • Who can get the flu shot? Flu shots are for anyone 6 months and older who is not allergic to the flu vaccine or any ingredient in the flu vaccine.
  • Who can get the nasal spray vaccine? The nasal spray vaccine is approved for use for people 2 years to 49 years old. But the CDC recommends against the nasal spray vaccine for certain groups of people. For example, pregnant women and people with weak immune systems should not get the nasal spray vaccine.
