It’s flu shot time again. The CDC has key facts on their website about the shot if you have any health-related questions. There are a few places you and your family can get their flu shots.
- Most pharmacies are offering them on site.
- Your child’s pediatrician may provide the shot through a nurse visit which I’ve found to be both faster and less traumatic for my son.
- The Dr.’s office is also an excellent way to get it if you’re already going in for something. They can just give you a dose while you’re there and have it over.
It does take a little while to provide protection so you’ll want to get your flu shot sooner rather than later. However, you may want to wait until at least October before getting the shot. It’s especially important to hang on a little longer if you’re over 65. See the NPR article for additional details.
