Be a flu fighter!A yearly flu vaccine is the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses.

Everyone 6 months and older should get an annual flu vaccine, particularly those at risk of serious complications.

 

Getting a flu vaccine is more important than ever during 2020-2021 to protect yourself, your family and your community from flu. A flu vaccine this season can also help reduce the burden on our healthcare systems responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and save medical resources for care of COVID-19 patients.

 

  • Get vaccinated each year as soon as the flu vaccine becomes available in your community.
  • Flu vaccines protect against viruses that research suggests will be most common each year.
  • Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine as soon as the current season's vaccines are available.
  • Children younger than 6 months are at high risk of serious flu illness, but are too young to be vaccinated so people who care for them should be vaccinated instead.
  • People at high risk of developing serious flu complications should be vaccinated (e.g. children, pregnant women, people with chronic health conditions like asthma, diabetes or heart and lung disease and people 65 years and older).
  • Residents of nursing homes and other chronic-care facilities should get an annual flu vaccine.

Where Can I Be Vaccinated?

You may be able to obtain a flu vaccine at your healthcare provider’s office, your local pharmacy and/or urgent care center. They may hold specific flu clinics or schedule you to be vaccinated.

If you do not have a healthcare provider, use the CDC Flu Vaccine Finder* (works best with Google Chrome or Firefox) to locate flu vaccine providers near you. If you live in the communities of Manchester or Nashua, you may also be able to obtain a flu vaccination from the local Health Department. As soon as flu vaccine information is available from the Health Departments, we will update this page. So, check back for updates.

*We recommend that you call the site before visiting to make sure that the specific vaccine you are looking for is available
