Why now is the perfect time to get a flu shot

Don’t worry if you’ve waited until all the Halloween candy has been gobbled up to get your annual flu shot.

Northeastern experts say the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving gatherings are a good time to get vaccinated against seasonal flu.

“Now is exactly the right time,” if you haven’t received it yet, he says Samuel Scarpindirector of life sciences at the Institute of Experimental AI at Northeastern University.

“The flu shot is a good combination, which is not the case every year,” he says.

With an early start to the flu season in 2022, “perhaps the best time to get vaccinated was two weeks ago. But the second best time is right now.”
