Public Officials Encourage Getting Flu Shots
Flu season typically runs from October to May, with the peak around January. Health officials say virtually everyone should get a vaccination each year to guard against new strains of the flu. The exceptions are babies under 6 months old and people who are allergic to the vaccine. The virus can be spread through coughing, sneezing or touching objects carrying the virus, such as telephones and door knobs.
