For most people, getting the flu means getting sick – usually for about a week. But for some people, the flu can be deadly. In the US, the flu kills tens of thousands of people per year.
So protect yourself and your loved ones: get a flu shot so you don’t pass it on to people who are more vulnerable than you are.
If you don’t have health insurance, you must be ages 19 to 64 to get your flu shot at a Community Flu Clinic or Health Center.
If you do have health insurance, most pharmacies will give a flu shot to anybody over age 9.
