Flu Shots

General Information:

  • Who should have a flu shot? --> Everyone age 6 months and older ... We recommend everyone age 65 or older have the 'high dose' flu shot if available.

  • Who should not have the flu shot? --> It is very rare that patients should not have a flu shot. The only people who should not have it, are those that have had an anaphylactic reaction to a previous flu shot.
