When should I get my flu shot?
Author : Medicare.gov - Subject : Health
Because flu activity can start as early as December, the best time to get a shot is during September, October and November. But getting the shot after November can still provide protection. A new shot is needed each year. The flu shot can be given at the same time as other shots including the pneumococcal shot. Even if you get your flu shot later than November; you will still benefit from receiving the flu shot since the flu season usually runs from November through April. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) maintains up to date information on the treatment of flu and the availability of the flu vaccine.
