The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now recommends that everyone over six months of age get the flu vaccine. Currently, there have been no reported problems with flu vaccine production, and we expect that everyone who wants it will be able to get a flu vaccine this season. The 2011/2012 flu vaccine will protect against three different flu viruses: an H3N2 virus, an influenza B virus and the H1N1 virus.
Contact your doctor's office to schedule an appointment to get a flu vaccine.
