Get your flu shots early, experts say
Sacramento Bee

Health experts in Sacramento County are urging people to get their flu shots early this season.

Doctor’s offices, retail clinics and hospitals will be well stocked by October, which is when influenza viruses typically start circulating. But because it takes about two weeks for the protective properties of vaccines to take effect, getting shots sooner rather than later is a good idea, experts say.

This year’s flu season should be no worse than last year’s.
