High Risk Patients
If you or someone you know is at high risk for contracting illnesses, then he or she should be made well aware of the dangers the flu is posing to them this season. It is imperative that he or she get themselves put on a list to be the among the first to receive a flu shot this season.
And because the flu vaccine is, as of right now, in short supply they should be of top priority to medical officials. They had to implement a list so as to protect the people with pre-existing medical conditions. These people are at a higher risk for greater complications related to the flu, including death.
Flu "waiting lists" are mostly available at clinics, as well as hospitals. You can even check with your primary care physician to make sure you can put your name on the list.
