Pregnant women
Children younger than 5 years old
People 65 years or older
Anyone who lives or works in close proximity to someone in any of the above groups
Flu vaccines now come in a variety of forms, from nasal sprays to intradermal vaccines, preferred for people with bleeding disorders. Find out which one is appropriate for you and get vaccinated before flu season hits.
