Healthy people asked not to get flu vaccine

Health Commissioner Dr. Paul Jarris is asking healthy Vermonters to forego getting a flu vaccine this year. The call comes after a British vaccine supplier announced that it wouldn’t ship any doses of flu vaccine to the United States this year.

Jarris says the flu vaccine should be reserved for young children, the elderly, pregnant women, people with underlying health problems and people who come in contact with high-risk individuals. The flu season usually starts in early winter.
