Who Should Get Vaccinated Against Seasonal Influenza?

Recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) indicate that everyone 6 months of age and older should get vaccinated against influenza prior to the end of October, if possible. 

While everyone should get a flu vaccine each influenza season, it’s especially important that the following groups get vaccinated either because they are at high risk of having serious influenza-related complications or because they live with or care for people at high risk for developing influenza-related complications:

  • Pregnant women
  • Children younger than 5, but especially children younger than 2 years old
  • People 50 years of age and older
  • People of any age with certain chronic medical conditions
  • People who live in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities
  • People who live with or care for those at high risk for complications from influenza, including:
    • Health care workers
    • Household contacts and out of home caregivers of children less than 6 months of age (these children are too young to be vaccinated)
    • Household contacts of persons at high risk for complications from the flu
