The flu (Influenza) can cause serious complications, especially in young children and older adults. Flu shots are a covered benefit, and are the most effective way to prevent the flu and its complications. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone 6 months and older be vaccinated every year.
