People with a chronic illness, such as diabetes, asthma, cardiovascular disease or kidney disease. Also, anyone with a suppressed immune system.
Pregnant women.
Children on aspirin therapy.
Anyone living in a nursing home or long-term care facility.
People who work in a health-care setting.
People who live with young children or older adults.
People who are obese.
People of Alaskan or American Indian descent.
