It’s Not Too Late to Get Your Flu Vaccine

After a busy holiday season, you might be reluctant to add one more thing to your to-do list. But it’s worth it.

“Getting the flu vaccine is simple, and it’s the most important thing you can do to protect yourself and your family from the flu,” says Dr. Anne Schuchat, Assistant Surgeon General of the U.S. Public Health Service and Director of CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases.

There is still time to get a flu vaccine to protect yourself and your family. Flu season typically peaks in January or February and can last as late as April or May.
