Flu Season

October is here and so is flu season. Is it too late to get your flu shot? Doctors say no — and advise getting one as soon as possible, especially since last year was one of the deadliest flu seasons in history.

Darria Long Gillespie, a clinical assistant professor at the University of Tennessee School of Medicine and author of the upcoming book Mom Hacks, says of the 2018 to 2019 season, “It seems it will be slightly milder than last year, but again, there is still time for the flu virus to evolve and change so we can always make estimations for what it’s going to be like, but I never would rely on them.”
