CDC 2022-2023 Flu Season FAQ:

“A few things are different for the 2022-2023 influenza (flu) season, including:

  • The composition of flu vaccines has been updated.
  • For the 2022-2023 flu season, there are three flu vaccines that are preferentially recommended for people 65 years and older. These are Fluzone High-Dose Quadrivalent vaccineFlublok Quadrivalent recombinant flu vaccine and Fluad Quadrivalent adjuvanted flu vaccine.
  • The recommended timing of vaccination is similar to last season. For most people who need only one dose for the season, September and October are generally good times to get vaccinated. Vaccination in July and August is not recommended for most adults but can be considered for some groups. While ideally, it’s recommended to get vaccinated by the end of October, it’s important to know that vaccination after October can still provide protection during the peak of flu season. 
  • Yes, you can get a COVID-19 vaccine and a flu vaccine the same time if you are eligible and the timing coincide .” (The Klotz Student Health Center is currently not offering COVID vaccines--please refer to your healthcare provider)

Please refer to the CDC Influenza site for more information about the seasonal flu. Flu shots will be provided by appointment at the Klotz Student Health Center.
