Influenza

Flu can start as early as October and occur as late as May, peaking between January and March.  The CDC recommends flu vaccine for everyone over the age of 6 months. Following the recommendations of the CDC and ACIP, flumist (nasal flu vaccine) will not be available for the 2016-2017 season due to poor effectiveness during the past 3 seasons.  You can get up-to-date information on the flu by visiting the Center for Disease Control website at cdc.gov/flu.
