When is it recommended to get a flu shot?

It is recommended to get flu vaccine every year. The best time to get a shot is in September-October when vaccines are available at medical centres.

Most people get vaccinated in October - November. The vaccination season lasts until the end of the circulation of influenza viruses. Therefore, even after the announcement of influenza epidemic, healthy individuals are recommended to get vaccinated if they have not done that yet and have not been infected with all forms of virus of that particular flu season.
