No context: The flu shot is an annual vaccination typically given in the fall in order to protect individuals during the cold season. There are limited contraindications and while it might not be 100% efficient it remains an important preventive measure.

How often does my baby need a flu shot?

1 years: Your baby should be vaccinated against flu every year, usually between september and november. Your baby needs to be at least six months old to receive the vaccine. The first flu season your baby gets vaccinated, he/she should receive a booster dose about one month later. In subsequent years, only one dose will be needed.
