A flu vaccine is the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses. It is recommended that all people 6 months and older get a flu shot, especially those at higher risk of complications from the flu. This includes children age 6 months to 18 years, pregnant women, people 50 years and older, anyone with chronic medical conditions, and people who live in nursing homes.

This year show the community what you will do when you don’t have the flu!
