We are all "faces" of influenza and should be immunized this and every year. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), with the support of leading health experts, recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older be immunized.
Unfortunately influenza immunization rates fall far short of public health goals every year even among those at highest risk. The CDC recommends annual influenza immunization for everyone 6 months of age and older. Even healthy people need a flu shot – to help stay healthy and to help prevent the spread of flu to others.
