Influenza / Flu

2016 Walk-In Flu Clinics

October to April is Flu Season. The best protection is an annual flu shot.

People at high risk for influenza-related complications who should take the flu shot are:

  • children between 6 months to 5 years of age
  • pregnant women
  • adults 65 and older
  • individuals who are extremely overweight
  • individuals living in chronic care facilities, regardless of age
  • individuals with chronic medical conditions such as lung disease including asthma, heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease or cancer.

In addition, people capable of passing the flu on to these high risk individuals should also get the flu shot. This includes:

  • health care workers
  • close household contacts living with individuals who have chronic disease
  • families with infants less than 6 months of age or those expecting a newborn
  • individuals who provide childcare on a regular basis to children less than 24 months of age
