It’s Not Too Late To Get Your Flu Shot

Health professional’s at St. Luke’s are reminding people it’s not too late to get your flu shot.

The vaccine is recommended for anyone above the age of six months. Flu season generally runs from October to March.

Children and the elderly run the greatest risk. It takes about 2 weeks for the flu vaccine to provide defenses, so the sooner the better.

Infectious Disease Doctor Sara Lund says, “We’re not heavy into the flu season yet but historically in the next few weeks is when cases will start to uptick.”

You can get a free flu shot at St. Luke’s or at most major chain pharmacies.
