Did you know being vaccinated before flu activity begins helps protect you once flu season starts? According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), it takes about two weeks after a vaccination for the body’s immunity response to respond fully, protecting you from getting the flu.
Flu viruses are worse during the fall and winter months often gaining momentum in October and November. Most of the time, flu activity peaks between December and March but can last as late as May.
