Who should get flu shots? The U.S. Center for Disease Control recommends it for: adults at or over 65 years, residents of nursing homes, all children aged 6-23 months, persons at or over 2 years of age with underlying chronic conditions, women in their 2nd or 3rd trimester of pregnancy during flu season, persons 6 months to 18 years receiving aspirin therapy, groups, including household members and caregivers who can infect high risk persons. Almost anyone can get free or low cost ($10-$15) flu shots from their county health office or other community sources. Some doctors, like Dr. Donald McGee in New Hampshire www.drmcgee.com, offer free shots in their office. Medicare Part B also pays for flu shots. Contact your county office of public health listed in your telephone book or your state Department of Health. If you have trouble finding a local low-cost source, or would like more information on the flu vaccine contact the National Immunization Information Hotline at 800-232-2522; www.cdc.gov/nip
