From Our Experts


Influenza, better known simply as the flu, is a contagious respiratory illness caused by viruses that infect the nose, throat and sometimes the lungs. It can cause mild to severe illness and, at times, can even lead to death. The best way to prevent the flu is by getting a flu vaccine each year.
Older people, young children and people with certain health conditions are at higher risk for serious flu complications. If you do get the flu, being vaccinated may help reduce the severity of symptoms and risk for complications. This flu season, it is more important than ever to get a flu vaccine. The flu vaccine will not protect against COVID-19, but it will reduce the risk of flu illness, hospitalization and death, thereby helping conserve potentially scarce healthcare resources.
People age 6 months and older are eligible to receive an annual seasonal flu vaccine, with rare exceptions that include those with allergies. Talk to your licensed healthcare provider to learn which type of flu vaccine is right for you.
Getting the seasonal flu vaccine annually (once a year) is the best way to reduce your risk of catching the seasonal flu and spreading it to others. September and October are ideal months to get your flu shot.
The CDC recommends injectable influenza vaccines. There is no preference for one flu vaccine over another as long as the vaccine is licensed and age appropriate.
No. The flu shot contains inactivated virus, so you cannot get the flu from the vaccine.
