Yes.

All patients with stage 4 (cirrhosis) should have a flu vaccination when they are available. Infections in cirrhotics can be life-threatening. Patients with cirrhosis have a high priority for getting vaccinated.

Each year (usually beginning in October), the flu spreads around the world. Anyone can get it, but some are at a higher risk of complications. People at higher risk of complications include:

Being younger than 5 years old
Being 65 years old and older
Having certain conditions, including:
Chronic lung condition (eg, asthma)
Cardiovascular disease
* Kidney or liver disease
Neurological, blood, or metabolic condition (eg, diabetes)
Having a suppressed immune system (eg, HIV)
Being pregnant
Being a child or teen who receives long-term aspirin therapy
Living in nursing homes or other long-term care facilities
Being American Indian/Alaska Native
Being severely obese
