CDC Vaccine Recommendations for the 2016-2017 Influenza Season

On Septermber 15, 2016 the Center for Disease Control released their Vaccine Recommendations for the 2016-2017 Influenza Season.

CDC recommends that everyone aged 6 months or older receive an influenza vaccine every year, by the end of October if possible. However, CDC continues to recommend that influenza vaccination efforts continue as long as influenza viruses are circulating in the community. Significant seasonal influenza virus activity can continue into May, so vaccination later in the season can still provide benefit during most seasons.
