It’s Not Too Late to Get your Flu Vaccination!
The flu season can last into the spring and as long as flu viruses are circulating, it’s not too late to get vaccinated. In fact, flu activity usually peaks in January or February, so getting vaccinated now can protect you at the time of the year when you are most likely to be exposed to the flu.
Everyone 6 months of age and older should be vaccinated against the flu every year because each year’s flu vaccine is made to match the strains of flu circulating that year. If you have health insurance, your best source for vaccination is your regular clinic or provider office. Flu vaccinations are also available in community settings such as pharmacies and some community clinics. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (DPH) is also offering flu vaccines at no-cost at its public health centers throughout Los Angeles County. No appointments are needed for LA County Department of Public Health vaccination clinics.
