According to AFC, there are 19.6 million veterans in the U.S., and approximately 2 million of them have no insurance coverage. The AFC says that veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces tend to be older and have more chronic health problems than the general adult population, which may place them at greater risk of complications from influenza.

Researchers with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) say getting the shot will protect you from getting seriously ill and keep you out of the hospital.
