Thank you for your question. I will definitely advise you to take him for the flu vaccination, especially if he is prone to the above-mentioned illnesses. Does he have a specialist that takes care of his lung health? There are other vaccines that are available to prevent pneumonia - if I were you, discuss this option with his specialist as well, if you have not done so already. If he had the flu vaccine last year, it might have prevented the flu, and yes, H1N1 did the rounds again last year. The problem is that flu viruses change and mutate all the time. The flu vaccine is 'updated' each year to try and keep up with the mutations so that it can cover most of the flu that is out there - but it does change all the time. So my overall answer is yes, rather take him for the flu vaccination. Good luck and I hope you have an uneventful flu season.
