The flu season is approaching, and the best way to protect yourself and your families is by getting vaccinated. Influenza is a serious illness and can be particularly dangerous in CAH patients, potentially placing them at risk for adrenal crisis.

The flu vaccine is available in both injectable (killed virus) and intranasal (live attenuated virus) formulations.  Discuss with your physician which formulation is available and appropriate for you.

The best time to get vaccinated is before the beginning of flu season, which can occur as early as October.
