About yearly flu vaccines:

The flu tends to be a seasonal phenomenon. In North America, it usually occurs in the fall and winter, and sometimes extends into May. It can be rather dangerous for some people, including young children, seniors, and people with some pre-existing conditions. It comes in different versions. Each year, researchers try to identify which versions will be common and design that year's flu vaccine to be most effective.

To be save, one should contact their doctor to see if there are contraindications to them taking the vaccine.
