These populations can be at risk for complications from influenza2,a:

Many conditions can increase the risk of serious complications5
The CDC has identified these concomitant conditions that may put patients at greater risk of complications from influenza.
Chronic lung disease
(e.g., chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cystic fibrosis)
(e.g., congenital heart disease, congestive heart failure, coronary heart disease)
(e.g., diabetes mellitus)
(e.g., inherited metabolic disorders, mitochondrial disorders)
(e.g., chronic kidney disease, moderate to severe renal disease)6
(e.g., hepatitis, chronic liver disease, cirrhosis)6
Neurological and neurodevelopmental conditions
(e.g., cerebral palsy, epilepsy, stroke, intellectual disability, moderate to severe developmental delay, muscular dystrophy, or spinal cord injury)
