Information about the flu vaccine
The CDC recommends everyone aged 6 and older receive a flu vaccine this fall. The best time for vaccination is October, before the flu begins spreading through the community. However, flu season does not peak until February, so receiving the vaccine in November or December can still be very helpful and protective.
One new recommendation this year is a preferential recommendation for the use of higher dose in people 65 and older. More information about flu shots can be found on the CDC website.
Information about COVID-19 boosters
