A leading health headline today indicates that the 2012-13 flu season is off to an early and strong start.
Flu cases always peak at some point during the season, usually in January or February, but sometimes as late as March and sometimes, apparently like this year, as early as November.
However, it’s not too late to get your flu shot. Despite the early start, flu season will continue into March and April.
Also, this year’s vaccine is well-matched to the reported influenza virus, which means the vaccine is even more likely to protect you.
