Vaccine. The 2013-14 seasonal flu vaccine is available. People need to get vaccinated each year because the vaccine is made to match the types of flu expected to circulate that year and because protection decreases over time.

Who? Everyone 6 months and older should get vaccinated now. Children ages 6 months to 8 years who did not get a dose of last year’s vaccine should get two doses this year.

Flu Season. Officially, flu season runs from October through May. Though most flu illnesses in Texas usually occur in December, January and February, flu is unpredictable and can happen at any time. People should get vaccinated now so that they’re protected for this flu season.
