The most recent FluView report indicates that flu season is just getting started in the United States; activity is still low across most of the country. Increases in activity are expected in the coming weeks.
This week CDC and partners are observing National Influenza Vaccination Week to encourage ongoing vaccination into the holidays and beyond. Vaccination uptake usually drops after November, but flu activity often peaks in January or February and can last into May. It is not too late to get your flu vaccine this season.
CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone 6 months and older.More than 142 million doses of flu vaccine have been distributed in the United States. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for protection to set in, making now the perfect time to get vaccinated. Find a Vaccine.
