Experts warn that it’s time to get your flu shot.
Dr. Chelsea Burgin with Prisma health said someone can spread the flu up to 24 hours prior to having symptoms so getting vaccinated is very important.
Doctors said anyone 6 months and older may be eligible to receive a flu vaccine and it can help to consult with your doctor if you’re an older adult, to find out which dosage of the vaccine to receive.
Dr. Burgin said flu season can last until March so getting your flue shot during October is a good time to ensure it protects you all season.
You can get your flu shot for free at one of the clinics held by Prisma Health lcoations.
