Frequently Asked Questions

When should I get my flu shot?

You should get a flu vaccine before flu viruses begin spreading in your community, since it takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body and provide protection against flu. Make plans to get vaccinated early in fall, before flu season begins. CDC recommends that people get a flu vaccine by the end of October.

If you get your flu shot early, do you need a booster?

No, not unless your provider advises it for very specific indications.
