Who Shouldn’t Get Vaccinated

According to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention, the influenza vaccine is not approved for children younger than six months old.

Also, people who have had a severe allergic reaction to the vaccine shouldn't be vaccinated.

The CDC said there are some people who should not get a flu vaccine without first consulting a physician.  These include:
  • People who have a moderate to severe illness with or without a fever.
  • People with a history of Guilain-Barre Syndrome (a severe paralytic illness, also called GBS) that occurred after getting the vaccine and who are not at risk for severe illness from influenza shouldn't get the vaccine.
