Who Should Get Vaccinated?

The CDC recommends most people aged 6 months and older to get vaccinated. Pregnant women, people over the age of 65 and those with certain medical conditions including asthma, diabetes and chronic lung disease are at high risk for developing life-threatening complications resulting from the flu. People severely allergic to chicken eggs or who have had a severe reaction to the vaccine should first speak with a physician.
