Influenza --“the flu”-- is a highly contagious virus that spreads easily between people. While anyone can get sick from the flu, it can be most dangerous for young children, people over 65 years of age, and those with chronic health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, asthma, or a weakened immune system.
A flu shot is the best way to protect yourself, your community, and your loved ones. Everyone aged 6 months and older should get the flu vaccine every year.
The City and its unions offer free flu shots to municipal employees and their families. All employees, dependents, and pre-Medicare retirees eligible for New York City health benefits are covered to receive a flu vaccination at no-cost.
