The flu season is here and it’s time to get the 2012-13 flu vaccine. Persons at greatest risk for severe complications from the flu include children under five, adults over 65, pregnant women, and people with chronic conditions, including asthma, heart disease, and diabetes. In addition, people who work in health care are at risk for getting and passing the flu to patients. But we can all get the flu, so the vaccine is recommended for everyone over the age of six months. The flu vaccine is available at doctor’s offices, pharmacies, health departments, and clinics. Go get your annual flu vaccine today.
