When to Get Your Flu Shot

The ideal time to get vaccinated is before the onset of flu season (which is usually sometime in November or December), but it's never too late. You can opt for an injection or (if you're healthy and not pregnant) the FluMist nasal spray. Get a new flu shot every year because you lose immunity over time and because the viruses targeted by the vaccine usually change from year to year. This year's formulation will also protect against H1N1 (a.k.a. swine flu), so there's no need for a separate shot.
