Health and Senior Services Commissioner Mary O’Dowd is urging all New Jersey residents to get a flu shot. 

Dowd said, “Now that flu season has arrived, the best way to protect yourself, your family and your co-workers is to get a flu shot.”

The peak of the flu season is in January and February.  According to the Centers for Disease Control, 420,00 to 1.7 million people are expected to get the flu this season.  Nationally, more than 36,000 people die due to flu complications each year. 

While getting a flu shot is important for all New Jerseyans, some groups of individuals are at higher risk of serious complications.  Those groups include:  Children under the age of five, people 50 years of age and older, pregnant women, health care workers and individuals with certain chronic medical conditions.
