Flu-When to Get Vaccinated
February 9th, 2011 by Administrator

Vaccination should continue throughout the influenza season into January and beyond. This is because the timinig and duration of flu activity can vary. Flu seasons can last as late as April or May. The CDC expects that seasonal influenza viruses will circulate and continues to recommend that people get a seasonal flu vaccine to protect against seasonal flu viruses.
