Influenza Vaccine Information
Influenza vaccine is recommended for anyone who wants to reduce their risk of becoming ill with the flu, or reduce their risk of spreading the flu to others.
It is best to get a flu shot in early fall. However, because influenza disease usually peaks in January or February, it’s not too late to get your shot in December or later.
