Key information for the public

  1. The influenza vaccine is safe and well-tolerated.
    Immunization has been shown to reduce the number of physician visits, hospitalizations and deaths in high-risk adults.
  2. It cannot cause influenza illness.
    The inactivated vaccines do not contain the live virus. The viruses in live attenuated influenza vaccines are weakened (can cause upper respiratory symptoms in ~5% of people).
  3. Annual vaccination is required.
    The body’s immune response from vaccination diminishes within a year, and influenza viruses change often.

For more information for the public, including who can get the free shot and where, see Get Flu Protection.
