It’s not too late to get vaccinated. This year’s flu vaccine protects against the H1N1 influenza virus. The main action steps recommended for protecting you and others from influenza illness are:

  • Everyone 6 months and older should get a yearly flu vaccination. It is especially important for pregnant women, seniors, people with underlying medical conditions and anyone who spends time with infants.
  • Take everyday preventive actions like covering coughs and sneezes, washing hands often, avoiding contact with people who are sick, and staying home when sick.
