Who should get the Flu Shot?
(Information from the CDC)
- In general, anyone who wants to reduce their chances of getting the flu can get vaccinated.
- People who should get vaccinated each year are: 1) Children aged 6 months up to their 19th birthday 2) Pregnant women 3) People 50 years of age and older 4) People of any age with certain chronic medical conditions 5) People who live in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities 6) People who live with or care for those at high risk for complications from flu, including:
- Healthcare workers
- Household contacts of persons at high risk for complications from the flu
- Household contacts and out of home caregivers of children less than 6 months of age (these children are too young to be vaccinated)
Who should not get the Flu Shot?
There are some people who should not be vaccinated without first consulting a physician. These include:
- People who have a severe allergy to chicken eggs
- People who have had a severe reaction to an influenza vaccination
- People who developed Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) within 6 weeks of getting an influenza vaccine
- Children less than 6 months of age (influenza vaccine is not approved for this age group)
- People who have a moderate-to-severe illness with a fever (they should wait until they recover to get vaccinated)
Vaccine Side Effects (What to Expect)
The viruses in the flu shot are killed (inactivated), so you cannot get the flu from a flu shot. Some minor side effects that could occur are:
- Soreness, redness, or swelling where the shot was given
- Fever (low grade)
- If these problems occur, they begin soon after the shot and usually last 1 to 2 days.
- Almost all people who receive influenza vaccine have no serious problems from it.
- On rare occasions, the flu vaccination can cause serious problems, such as severe allergic reactions.
