…an FYI for those considerring the flu shot.




"Pharmacies across the country are stocking flu shots and encouraging people to get theirs early. But experts say, don't rush. If you get your flu shot too early, it can become ineffective before the flu season is over. According to a series of studies released last year, vaccinations are not lasting as long as doctors thought. After 3 or 4 months, the effectiveness of the flu shot dropped dramatically."
