The flu vaccine is recommended for everyone 6 months of age and older. It is especially important for those at higher risk of developing serious complications from the flu. See a complete list of people at higher risk is available on the CDC website at www.cdc.gov/flu/highrisk/index.htm.

Flu vaccines can be administered at the same time as COVID-19 vaccines or other immunizations.

SNHD notes that the flu season was mild last year, with just six deaths and 50 hospitalizations — compared to 2019, when there were 54 deaths and 1,398 hospitalizations. Some of the safety measures put in place for COVID-19 likely kept the flu at bay. With schools and businesses reopened, people need to be on guard against the flu.
