Have you received your annual flu shot yet? If not, what’s the hold up? Getting vaccinated is by far the most effective way to protect your health from seasonal influenza—a highly contagious respiratory infection that affects up to 20% of the American population every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC).

Who Needs a Flu Shot?
Just about everyone older than six months should be vaccinated against the flu on an annual basis, including young, healthy adults. While it’s still possible to catch the flu when vaccinated, your symptoms will likely be very mild and short-lived thanks to the antibodies provided by the flu shot.
Some people are considered to have an increased risk of developing potentially life-threatening flu complications and should prioritize receiving their flu shots. According to the CDC, these individuals include:
- Adults ages 65 and older
- People with certain chronic health conditions, including asthma, diabetes, kidney disease, and heart disease
- Women who are pregnant or who have recently given birth
- Young children between the ages of six months and two years
