Not too late

” We all know the old English proverb: “It’s better late than never.” But believe it or not, the saying does hold true when it comes to your annual flu shot.

Infectious disease expert Susan Rehm, MD, says it’s wise for people to get the vaccine whenever they can because there’s really no way to know for sure what type of flu season is ahead. The CDC recommends that everyone 6 months and older receive a flu vaccine.
