Itís Not Too Late to Get your Flu Vaccination!

The flu season can last into the spring and as long as flu viruses are circulating, itís not too late to get vaccinated. In fact, flu activity usually peaks in January or February, so getting vaccinated now can protect you at the time of the year when you are most likely to be exposed to the flu.
