Flu Vaccine Information

The flu (influenza) vaccine should be given to children:

  • Between the ages of 6 months and 18 years
  • Over age 5 who have a higher risk for serious illness

Those who come in contact with children should also receive the vaccine (such as caregivers and breast-feeding women).

You may have many questions regarding the Seasonal Flu and H1N1 (also known as Swine Flu). For more information on how you can protect yourself and your child, refer to Dartmouth-Hitchcock's Flu Vaccine Information website.
