Different types of flu viruses can spread through the community during flu season. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone ages 6 months and older get the flu vaccine annually to protect against the most common types of flu viruses. Even healthy children and adults can get very sick from the flu.

High-risk groups susceptible to severe flu complications include seniors ages 65 and older, pregnant women and people with chronic medical conditions such as asthma, chronic lung disease and diabetes.
