When is the right time to get your flu shot? TNP Board Member Cindy Weston gives a flu shot 101 on KBTX yesterday.
"Now. Now is the right to get it," said Cindy Weston, professor at the Texas A&M College of Nursing and family nurse practitioner. "As soon as it's available is the right time to get it, but October is an optimal time."
Other flu vaccine advice:
Patients have to get the new flu vaccine every year for it to be effective.
Children under the age of eight who have never received a flu vaccine should talk to their health care provider about getting a booster one month after initial vaccination.
