Who should get the H1N1 flu vaccine and when?

Adults and children six months of age and older should get vaccinated to protect themselves and their families from the H1N1 flu virus as soon as it is available. The H1N1 flu vaccine is particularly important for people at risk of complications from the flu and those in close contact with them.

Note: if you are pregnant or think you could be pregnant, tell your health care provider as this may affect the vaccine recommended for you.
