Flu Season Questions Answered with PacMed’s Dr. Stewart

It’s flu season again—and lest we forget—the pandemic isn’t over yet, so it’s great timing to refresh our memories about flu season and getting our flu shots. I spoke with Family Medicine physician, Dr. Jimmie Stewart from Pacific Medical Centers (PacMed) about this topic this week.

Seattleite: When should we get the flu shot? And who do you recommend gets one?

Dr. Jimmie Stewart: I’d recommend people get it as soon as possible. Whenever you possibly can. I recommend anyone 6 months and up get vaccinated unless specifically recommended not to by their doctor.
