The flu (influenza) is a serious disease and can be dangerous, especially in young children and older adults. Flu shots are a covered benefit, and are the best way to stop the flu and its dangers. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone 6 months and older be vaccinated every year.
Peak flu season in the U.S. is from November to March. Be sure to get vaccinated before November to help increase your chances of not getting the flu.
