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.
