Leaves are falling from the trees, and temperatures are cooling. Fall is here and so is the flu season. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that everyone six months of age and older get a flu shot each year. The flu season typically runs from October to April, but the CDC recommends getting vaccinated by the end of October. Five to 20 percent of the population in the United States is hit with the virus and roughly 200,000 people are hospitalized, according to the CDC.
