Date:8/11/2008

er 50 years of age, women who will be pregnant during the flu season and anyone with chronic health conditions, such as heart disease, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and diabetes. The CDC also recommends annual vaccination for caregivers and household contacts of these high-risk groups, such as relatives and healthcare workers. In fact, approximately 83 percent of the U.S. population is included in one or more of the target groups that the CDC recommends to receive the vaccination; however, less than 40 percent of the U.S. population received a flu vaccination during 2007-2008.

The beginning, severity and length of the flu season can vary widely from year to year. According to CDC data, the peak in flu activity between the years 1976 and 2008 frequently occurs after December, most commonly in February. In general, healthcare providers should begin offering vaccination soon after the vaccine becomes available and if possible by October. The CDC recommends an extended vaccination effort, with vaccination offered at every opportunity throughout the flu season.
