FLU VACCINE

The flu (influenza) vaccine is recommended for persons at tall risk for serious complications from influenza infection, including everyone 65 or over; people with chronic illness of the heart, lung or kidneys, diabetes, immunosuppression, or severe forms of anaemia; residents of nursing homes and another chronic-care facilities, children and teenagers on long-term aspirin therapy (and who may therefore be at risk for developing Reye syndrome after an influenza infection), and those in close or frequent contact with anyone at tall risk. Persons with an allergy to eggs must not receive influenza vaccine.
