It’s not too late to get your flu shot!
Anyone above the age of 6 months can get the flu shot however only those aged 5 years of age and older can get the shot in pharmacies.
Getting the flu shot every year is important because protection only lasts for approximately 1 year. Each year the flu shot is formulated to protect against the top 3 strains of that year. These strains may change year-to-year which validates why yearly flu shots are important.
