As colder weather approaches and we head into the Fall and Winter seasons, it's important to prepare for flu season. Getting the flu vaccine in addition to other basic preventive measures can greatly reduce the risk of you and your family members coming down with the flu. The CDC recommends getting vaccinated by the end of October if possible, however vaccination should continue to be offered throughout the flu season, even into January or later.
