The seasonal flu vaccine is especially important for pregnant women, people 65 years of age and older, and others with chronic illnesses such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease and lung disease. People with chronic illnesses may have an increased chance of developing pneumonia as a result of getting the flu. Those who may have close contact with high-risk individuals including infants should also be vaccinated. That might include adults or children living with or caring for people at high-risk of developing complications.
Consent forms in English and Spanish are available at stormontvail.org/flu and may be completed and brought to the seasonal flu shot clinic to save time.
