Question: 

If I have never had the regular flu vaccine how will it affect me if I have my first one now at age 63.

Answer: 

If you are concerned about side effects, receiving your first dose of influenza vaccine at the age of 63 does not increase your risk for adverse events. It is good that you are considering influenza vaccination as our risk of getting really sick from the flu increases a lot as we get older. Read more about influenza here.
