Pat Crossley, a flu nurse with Visiting Nurses Association in Indianapolis, administers a flu shot to Ivy Trace resident Mildred Reed. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends a yearly seasonal flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against seasonal influenza. While there are many different flu viruses, the seasonal flu vaccine protects against the three seasonal viruses that research suggests will be most common. Vaccination is especially important for people at high risk of serious flu complications, including young children, pregnant women, people with chronic health conditions like asthma, diabetes or heart and lung disease and people 65 years and older.
