Seasonal flu vaccine is recommended by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for everyone over the age of 6 months. With the COVID-19 still a reality in New Jersey, receiving a flu vaccine is especially important this year. While the flu vaccine does not protect against COVID-19, minimizing respiratory illness in our community and ensuring the availability of hospital resources to support of the current public health emergency remains important. 

According to the CDC, vaccination is especially important for people at higher risk of severe influenza and their close contacts, including healthcare personnel and close contacts of children younger than 6 months. Everyone is encouraged to receive the 2021-2022 flu vaccine. Most people are ill with flu for only a few days, but some get much sicker and may need to be hospitalized. 

Since most influenza occurs from November through May, peaking between December and February, now is the best time to get a flu shot to insure full protection for the whole season. Protect yourself, your family and those in your community by getting your flu vaccine at this year’s clinic.
