Fight the Flu. Get Vaccinated!

The flu is a contagious disease that can cause serious illness. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that flu has resulted in 9 million–41 million illnesses, 140,000–710,000 hospitalizations and 12,000–52,000 deaths annually between 2010 and 2020.

There are many reasons to get a flu vaccine each year:

  • Flu vaccination can help keep you from getting sick with flu. Flu vaccine prevents millions of illnesses, hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations, and thousands of deaths each year.

  • Flu vaccination has been shown in several studies to reduce severity of illness in people who get vaccinated but still get sick, including reducing the risk of flu-related hospitalization.

  • Flu vaccination can reduce the risk of potentially serious flu complications for people with certain chronic health conditions and can reduce the risk of a flu-related worsening of a health condition like asthma, diabetes, and heart disease.

  • Flu vaccination during pregnancy helps protect pregnant people from flu during and after pregnancy and helps protect their infants from flu in their first few months.

  • Flu vaccine can be lifesaving in children.

  • Getting vaccinated yourself may also protect people around you, including those who are more vulnerable to serious flu illness, like babies and young children, older people, and people with certain chronic health conditions.

As the COVID pandemic continues into a third flu season, do your part to help reduce strain on California’s hospitals by getting the flu shot.

CDPH recommends the annual flu vaccination for everyone six months of age and older. For more information and resources, visit CDPH's flu webpage and the updated California Immunization Coalition (CIC) flu season communications toolkit.

Vaccinated pregnant people pass antibodies to their developing fetuses, protecting the baby when they're born – and themselves – against the flu. Since people are eligible for the flu vaccine when they're 6 months or older, getting the vaccine when pregnant helps protect your baby for the first few months of life.
