CDC recommendations for flu shot 65+

New guidance for seniors

The CDC does not recommend any particular flu vaccine for people younger than age 65. It does have preferential vaccines for those ages 65 and older, and that’s new guidance this year.

“For people 65 years and older, there are three flu vaccines that are preferentially recommended over standard-dose, unadjuvanted flu vaccines. These are Fluzone High-Dose Quadrivalent vaccine, Flublok Quadrivalent recombinant flu vaccine and Fluad Quadrivalent adjuvanted flu vaccine,” CDC said.

If those aren’t available, the CDC recommends getting any available vaccine.

Reportedly, the high-dose is the most effective for over-65.

I’m up for the old geezer flu shot and the new Covid booster. Not sure which I should get first and how long I need to wait between them. Time to call my provider.

You can get both at the same time. I got mine yesterday. One in each arm.

Seems like it was just yesterday I did that double-shot. But I just checked and it was last November. Damn, time flies when you get older.

We got them in August last year; this year we're going to wait until the end of Oct. That should maintain a higher level of protection through the typical Jan peak of flu.

Thanks that's good to know. I usually have a bad couple of days with the Covid shots and 1 bad day or so with the flu shot. Not sure that I want to see how I respond to both at once but I'll look into it.

I got my GF (Geezer Flu) shot with my secon shingles shot, recently.

Now I'm just waiting for notification for my next vaccination booster.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
