When Should I Get The Flu Shot?

Written by   (author of Obvious Conclusions)

Question:  Hello there.  The upcoming winter time seems to be the time when people get the flu so I was wondering when I should get my flu shot?

Answer: When You Should Get Your Flu Shot!

The flu shot vaccine can take 2 weeks to achieve full immunity.  Thus, you will want to get the flu shot at least 2 weeks before flu season, which varies every year but can begin as early as October. 

If you have not gotten the flu shot before flu season begins, this does not mean that you should not get it at all.  You should get the flu shot at any time during the flu season if you forgot to do it before.  This will protect yourself and others.
