Vaccine Before Halloween

The Florida Department of Health is encouraging everyone aged six months and older, to get their flu shot so they are protected as flu season begins. It can take up to two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body and provide protection against influenza virus. That is why it is important to get vaccinated early in the fall, before the flu season really gets underway.

Check with your physician, your local county health department, or locate a flu shot to see where flu vaccines are available in your area.
