Flu season typically runs from October to May, and most clinics have vaccines ready for patients by the end of September.
This year flu vaccines are already out.
So if you get a flu shot now, will you be covered for the entire flu season?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say the answer is yes. The vaccine will give you full coverage, and it is better to get vaccinated as soon as possible to protect yourself from early outbreaks.
Yearly flu vaccines are recommended by the CDC for everyone six months of age and older.
