When Is Flu Season?

The “seasonal flu season” in the United States can begin as early as October and last as late as May. However, some health officials say this year’s round came as much as five weeks earlier than expected. Health officials recommend getting the seasonal flu vaccine as soon as it becomes available as a preventative measure.
