Having the flu can be dangerous for anyone. But it is extra risky for people with diabetes or other chronic health problems.
In general, every person with diabetes needs a flu shot each year. Talk with your doctor about having a flu shot. Flu shots do not give 100 percent protection, but they do make it much harder for you to catch the flu for about 6 months.
For extra safety, it’s a good idea for the people you live with or spend a lot of time with to get a flu shot, too. You are less likely to get the flu if the people around you don’t have it.
