HSHS Medical Group PatientFirst PatientFirst Back to Winter 2020 Don't forget your flu shot! "Most people should get their flu shot in September or October, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention," says Nupur Verma, MD. "That’s before the flu starts spreading in most communities but also late enough to last through the worst of the flu season. However, it is not too late to get the flu shot in November or December if you haven’t gotten yours yet." Established patients can call their local HSHS Medical Group office to schedule a flu shot.
