As a consumer of Flash technology, you don't need to do anything as it's the content developer/creator that needs to update their content.  Note that in some cases, content creators have chosen to not update their content.  In these cases, the content will not be viewable after Flash Player's end-of-life as browser vendors will also terminate support for Flash Player.
