This year, national experts recommend that everyone older than six months receives a flu vaccination.This year’s influenza vaccine protects against the 2009 H1N1 and two other influenza viruses that researchers believe will be common this season. Experts say that everyone should get an annual flu vaccine to expand protection to more people.It is especially important that pregnant women, children younger than 5, people older than 65 and people with certain chronic medical conditions be vaccinated. Others include residents of long-term care facilities and people who live with or care for those who are at high risk, such as healthcare workers and the parents of young children.Protect yourself. Protect the ones you love. Visit Centegra.org for more information about flu vaccines or talk to your primary care physician.
