In brief: 6 months and older

The annual influenza vaccine is currently recommended for all persons over 6 months old and in particular for those with chronic disease such as heart and lung disease.

In brief: Everyone 6 mo and up

Everyone age 6 months and older should receive a flu vaccine.
Children under age 9 who are receiving flu vaccine for the first time should have 2 doses a month apart. Those aged 2-49 years of age who have no chronic medical conditions may be eligible for the nasal version, Flu Mist.
