It’s important to receive your annual flu shot, as it defends your immune system against the seasonal influenza virus, which according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, affects up to 20 percent of Americans every year. The virus can produce several uncomfortable symptoms, such as:

  • Fever
  • Muscle aches
  • Chills
  • Headaches
  • Congestion
  • Sore throat
  • General malaise

Everyone – even young, healthy adults – should consider getting a flu shot. But, there are certain groups who are at an increased risk of getting the flu and experiencing complications from the virus, and should be particularly mindful to get vaccinated. These at-risk groups include:

  • Adults over 65 years old
  • Children under 6 years old (infants under 6 weeks old should not be vaccinated)
  • Pregnant women and women who have recently given birth
  • Adults with certain chronic conditions, including asthma and heart disease
