Seasonal flu vaccine is recommended by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for everyone over the age of 6 months. With the COVID-19 pandemic still a reality in New Jersey, receiving a flu vaccine is especially important this year. While the flu vaccine does not protect against COVID-19, minimizing respiratory illness in our community and ensuring the availability of hospital resources to support of the current public health emergency remains important.

According to the CDC, vaccination is especially important for people at higher risk of severe influenza and their close contacts, including healthcare personnel and close contacts of children younger than 6 months. Everyone is encouraged to receive the 2020-2021 flu vaccine. Most people are ill with flu for only a few days, but some get much sicker and may need to be hospitalized.
