Getting vaccinated against the flu each year is one of the most important steps people can take to help protect themselves from flu and its complications. It also helps avoid spreading the disease to more vulnerable populations as well as to parents, siblings, grandparents, babysitters, and child-care providers.
Note: Children younger than 9 years of age may need 2 doses approximately 1 month apart, depending on their influenza vaccination history.
