Beware of Flu Shots

Flu vaccine is one of the weakest, giving protection for 2-3 months against specific strains of flu. Those over 60 years of age tend to have weaker immune system, which have protection for up to 6 weeks, and only in 65-75% of people. Flu shots should be taken as late as possible, end of November – early December to cover the “flu season.†So why are drug stores pushing “early flu shots†in August to October? The benefit is long gone by the time it is really needed.
