This year both the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend getting the flu shot by the end of October to prepare for peak influenza season, which is typically in February. Influenza also known as the flu is a serious infection that affects everyone, even healthy people. The flu vaccination can protect you from getting sick, and can also protect the people around you who are more vulnerable to serious flu illness.
