The exact timing and duration of flu seasons can vary, but influenza activity often begins to increase in October and peak between December and February. 

Although anyone can get the flu, there are certain groups at increased risk of flu-related infection and complications. The groups include young children, pregnant women, and adults 50 years of age and older. 

The best way to help protect against the flu is vaccination. The flu vaccination reduces the chance of serious illness or hospitalization and avoids potentially dangerous complications. Even if you’re not worried about yourself, remember the flu shot also helps protect the people around you. 

Don’t delay, talk to your provider today about flu shot options that may be right for you.
