It is time to get your flu shot. Flu season is considered as starting in October and ending in May. The flu vaccine does not cause the flu, as many people seem to think. The flu can make a person sick for more than a week, and it is significantly worse than catching a common cold. An infant younger than 6 months old cannot receive the vaccine but older children and parents can and should because this protects the infant. This is very important because an infant is at a higher risk of suffering from serious complications of the flu.
