  • Flu Shots for Seniors

These FDA approved vaccines are created to offer extra protection beyond what a standard flu shot provides, which is important for older adults who have weaker immune defenses and have a great risk of developing risky flu complications.

Those most at risk of developing flu-related complications are adults 65 and older, children six month to five years, pregnant women, people with chronic health conditions, Indigenous peoples and residents of long-term care homes.

Flu vaccines often aren't more effective than 40% to 50% but MacDonald said with year's formula attacking three to four different strains of flu, its benefits are clear. And if you do happen to get sick, you probably won't get as sick as you would without it. This vaccine, according to a 2013 clinical trial, was 24 percent more effective than the regular-dose shot at preventing flu in seniors. And it can take nearly two weeks for the vaccine to kick in.

Prepare for the coming flu season and get the freebie. And neither vaccine is recommended for seniors who are allergic to chicken eggs, or those who have had a severe reaction to a flu vaccine in the past.
