It’s recommended that everyone ages six months and older receive a flu vaccination annually to reduce the risk of illness or transmission. Certain groups, such as children ages six months and older, pregnant women, individuals aged 50 and older, and those with chronic conditions, are strongly advised to get vaccinated. Additionally, vaccination is also recommended for healthcare workers, caregivers of young children and older adults, as well as individuals living with or caring for people at higher risk for severe complications from influenza.
