It's not too late! December 6-12, 2015 is national influenza vaccination week (NIVW).

Get your flu vaccine. It's safe and your best protection against the flu.

A yearly flu vaccine is recommended for everyone 6 months and older.

Vaccination is especially important for protecting those at high risk for serious flu complications, including:

  • young children
  • pregnant women
  • adults 65 years and older
  • anyone with chronic health conditions like asthma, diabetes, and heart disease.
