The CDC recommends everyone age 6 months and older get an annual flu vaccine.

When should I get vaccinated?

It is recommended to have a flu vaccine prior to the actual start of the flu season– ideally by the end of October. However, if you’ve procrastinated, it would still benefit you to have the vaccine administered later even as far as into January.
