The King County Public Health Department announced that the new flu vaccine has arrived, which means it’s time to start planning on when to “get poked.”

Unlike a few years ago, this year there’s plenty of flu vaccine to go around.

Vaccination is recommended to protect people at high-risk for complications from the flu, including:

  • Children aged six months until their 19th birthday
  • Pregnant women
  • People 50 years of age and older
  • People, 6 months or older, with certain chronic medical conditions, such as heart disease, lung disease (including asthma), kidney disease or diabetes
  • People who live in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities

People who live with or care for those at high risk for health complications from flu should be vaccinated as well, including:

  • Household contacts of persons at high risk for complications from the flu
  • Household contacts and out of home caregivers of children less than 6 months of age, who are too young to be vaccinated
  • Healthcare workers

King County Health has created a website to help you find nearby flu shots (click here and enter your zip code on the right), but we’ve taken it one step further and created our own customized, interactive and regional “Places to Get Poked Map” – just click on a nearby pushpin, or use the zoom in (+) and out (-) controls on the left and you’ll see a listing of the store or pharmacy where you can get a flu shot:
