All people 6 months and older should be given a flu shot, according to the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. Live nasal vaccine offers 2- to 8-year-olds better protection against flu, but certain people, including children younger than 2 years, adults older than 49 and pregnant women, should not be given this type of vaccine. The recommendations were published in the CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. DailyRx.com (08/20)
