This rate has remained relatively stable for the past three years, but was 5-10% higher 2006-2010.Flu vaccination is especially important for adults 65 years and older who have a higher risk of hospitalization and death, if they become ill with the flu. Vermonters 65 years and older can receive the flu vaccine at provider practices, pharmacies, flu clinics held throughout Vermont by visiting nurse associations and at some worksites.
