Influenza spreads readily from person to person in schools, workplaces and homes. Everyone over 6 months of age should get the annual flu vaccine to prevent sickness, unnecessary healthcare visits, hospitalizations and deaths from influenza. Health Department Officials recommend that people receive vaccination doses early as soon as vaccine is available for full protection throughout the flu season. This year, a single flu vaccine will be administered to provide protection against the H1N1 flu virus that caused outbreaks last year and 2 other flu viruses that are expected to cause illness this season.
