Flu vaccines help your body fight off influenza viruses. Many viruses can cause flu. Flu vaccines are reviewed yearly to be sure the one you receive targets the most common flu viruses.
 

A flu vaccine can be given through a shot or nasal spray. A shot is recommended for most people. Talk with a healthcare provider to decide what’s best for you.
 

A vaccine cannot guarantee you won’t get the flu, but it will make any flu sickness much milder.
Who should get a flu shot?
 

Healthcare providers recommend a yearly flu vaccine for anyone older than six months.
 

The flu vaccine is especially important for:
 

    Adults 50 and older
    Children 6 months to 4 years
    Pregnant women
    Anyone with a weakened immune system
    Residents of long-term care facilities
    Anyone with a chronic health condition, such as asthma, heart disease or kidney disease
    People who spend time with a person at risk for flu complications
 

The flu vaccine is not recommended for:
 

    Infants younger than 6 months
    Anyone who has had allergic reactions to past flu shots
    Anyone with allergies to eggs or other vaccine ingredients
    Anyone who currently has a fever
    Anyone who has had Guillain-Barré syndrome, a rare condition in which your body's immune system attacks your nerves
