Monthly Q & A
I haven’t had a flu shot yet–is it too late in the season to get one?
No it is not too late. The flu season usually peaks in January or February, and can continue well into the spring. It takes about two weeks following a flu shot to produce a protective immune response, so even if you have not had a flu shot yet – talk to your doctor – because you should get a shot every year.
