RSV risk for older adults

RSV stands for respiratory syncytial (sin-SISH-uhl) virus, a highly contagious virus that can affect your lungs and breathing passages.

If you’re aged 60 or older, the risk of RSV infection causing severe symptoms can be even higher—making it that much more important to protect yourself. If you got sick with RSV, you’d miss out on being there for the ones you love.

For some people, RSV infection can lead to more serious and potentially life-threatening illnesses. RSV can be especially risky for older adults with certain medical conditions like:

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease



Congestive heart failure


Advanced liver or kidney disease
