The following people are at higher risk for influenza-related complications and are encouraged to get the flu shot:

  • children between 6 months to 5 years of age

  • individuals who are extremely overweight
  • individuals living in chronic care facilities, regardless of age
  • individuals of any age with chronic medical conditions such as lung disease including asthma, heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, neurological conditions or cancer.

In addition, people capable of passing the flu on to these high risk individuals are also encouraged to 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
