Influenza (flu) is a contagious viral infection that can cause mild to severe symptoms. Influenza viruses spread mainly from one individual to another through coughing or sneezing.
When should influenza immunization be given?
It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies that protect against flu to develop in the body. It's best to be vaccinated before the flu begins spreading in your community. September and October are generally good times to be vaccinated against flu. Ideally, everyone should be vaccinated by the end of October.
